“Children born to another woman call me “Mom.” The magnitude of that tragedy and the depth of that privilege are not lost on me.” -Jody Landers
There is nothing on earth I love more than being a mother to my four babies. I didn’t know being a mother would grow me right along with my children.
Motherhood is my greatest privilege and a role in this life I take very seriously. I am not a perfect mother and I don’t have perfect children, but I strive to bring these children up in the Lord and that is all I can do. The rest is up to Him.
I pray my children see the hand of God on their lives and make the choice one day to love Him with all their hearts and serve Him with their lives and their stories of God’s faithfulness upon their lives.
Redemption is written on the pages of all of our stories. Redemption does not mean perfection because in a perfect world, redemption would not be necessary.
I am thankful for a God who is more than able to take the broken pieces of our lives and bring beauty out of it.
When I look at a picture of my family, that is what I see: the goodness and faithfulness of God every step of this journey that has brought us to today.
(I will finally be returning soon to finish Through the Lens of Grace where I will conclude with the rest of our journey through infidelity and then the story of how both boys came to our family.)
