From the moment we find out we are going to become a mama, planning begins.
We want everything just right. Set on being intentional with every action we take, from the words we speak to our little darling(s), to the changing of the not so pleasant diapers. And when we start out; it is – just right.
God’s grace bestowed on us this miracle of life. We love our little bundle of joy. Coddling, cuddling and coaching as we love deep. He told us how we are to train our children, and care for them all throughout the Bible.
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. ~Proverbs 22:6 NIV
Along the way, life can get messy. Our family generally grows from one to more. Even so, the moments begin to run into minutes, the minutes hours, then a day is at its end. Being intentional seems far away.
Thoughts reel in our heads about moments when our children needed us, or tugged on our skirt shouting “mama. mama. mama.” Our thoughts a million miles away. Peeling potatoes or involved in other tasks, we brushed them off, for we were busy. Intentional?
Catching a glimpse of our Bible sitting on a table by our favorite chair. This morning there was just no time. Intentional?
