Trust, faith, control, fear: are they all part of good parenting? Questions, so many questions, have been pounding away in my brain this week. But the one I keep coming back to is this – am I willing to trust God with the “gray areas” in my life? In my children’s life? To relinquish control (or the illusion of control), and trust that if I seek God and simply make the best decisions I know how with what information I am given that He will take care of the rest. That I don’t have to try to protect my child from everything, every thing, in the entire world? That I don’t have to walk in fear. That I can make decisions based on freedom and love and joy, and not on fear. That I don’t need to control my children with fear? I must be willing to push through being afraid and live bravely so that my children will be free to become who they are to be. I am willing to give it a try.
I'm a blog-at-home mom who writes because my sanity depends on it. I'm a Jesus-lover, family gal, coffee addict, recovering hoarder in a small New England town that bears a suspiciously close resemblance to "Stars Hallow" (and if you know where that is, we're friends already!). I am working towards simple living, one step at a time.
