"spouses are like mirrors, reflecting back to us all of our sinful flaws...children are like magnifying glasses, intensifying every detail of our lives."
this is my mess, my rich blessing from my LORD
my daily reminder of His compassionate, deep, and profound love for me
so deeply am i loved by my God, that He fills my days with opportunities to make beds, fix toys, read books, dress dolls, clean toilets, fold clothes, wipe bums, correct mistakes, listen calmly, love more, laugh lots, cry often, hear completely, wait for a really long time, tie shoes, help untie shoes, kiss owies, forgive as i have been forgiven, and mop up messes as "unto the Lord"
this is my sweet MESS
