Ephesians 3:17-19

Sometimes I feel like I'm trying so hard to be a mom - cook, clean, bathe, provide, etc. - that I've forgotten.....or haven't put much time into doing what a mom really needs to be doing for her children. I came across this verse that pretty much summed up what I hope for my girls.

".....I pray that you, being rooted and firmly established in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the length and width, height and depth of God's love, and to know the Messiah's love that surpasses knowledge, so you may be filled with all the fullness of God."

I have a feeling that the rooted and firmly established in love part will come easy. They are loved.....they are firm in that love. It's the comprehend and know part that is tough. And the filled part will hopefully come as a result of the know. And that's my job. Mine and Boog's. To show Him to them through our lives....our actions....our words....His Word. That's a tough, but worthy, assignment. But really. What more could we hope for our children, except to be filled with His fullness throughout their lives?

Now I've got to commit this verse to memory!

Such an awesome responsibility we have as parents! You and Boog are doing a great job...Grace is such a wonderful little girl to be around! I am sure Sophie is going to be just as wonderful...maybe a little more rowdy :) but wonderful all the same!
