Daughter With Grace

Yesterday evening I was busy.  Busy working myself into a tizzy!  Could have been from a full day and a frenzy to see the family eat before Wednesday night church.  The girls and I finally made our way to the car to pick up the Dad and then to dinner. I was complaining, murmuring; I headed down that slippery slope. Then she said quietly and with the wisdom of years and having been on the listening end of such tizzy more than a few times, she said “Mom, don’t be upset.”  As I began my litany of excuses, my eyes caught her face, her humble posture. I changed my words. “You didn’t do anything Honey. It was me…my failure and…With grace, “Mom, it’s okay. We have time.”  Deep whoosh of breath.  I was humbled. I heard her heart. The daughter who I am supposed to be refining and bringing up in Him turned a corner and showed me it has taken.  And then it was pleasant and good in the car.

How good it is when brothers (and moms and daughters) dwell together in unity.  Psalm 133

About chinamom3078

I am a woman who loves Jesus who loved me first. Prone to wander and distraction is common for me as I seek to reflect Him in my daily life. I am wife, mom, and grandma who has lived on 3 continents in 26+ apartments, townhouses, military housing, suburbs and now a 200 plus year old farm house. Preparing and hosting meals for the hundreds who have passsed through our home has been a joy and blessing to our family as we listened and shared over meals, coffee, light nights and Bible studies. A rich life! I have reached the age to feel qualifies to be an ”older woman” (as in Titus) even though I feel far from old and have plenty of room to grow each and everyday. And my joy is to teach Bible studies and help train other women to lead well.
