Strength & Grace: WholeHearted Home Wednesdays #15

Special Strength and Grace

I think a newborn baby
Is the sweetest gift of all
To have a tiny human life
So fragile and so small

And yet it is an awesome task
To mould this human clay
Each word I speak-each deed I do
Will form from day to day

And thus a mother needs the Lord
For special strength and grace
So that her tiny child may see
The Saviour 'through her face'

~Jeniffer Rene Daniel~

Motherhood is the hardest task I have ever undertaken. It is a gift to my husband and children. Thankfully I had no idea how difficult it would be when my first child was born. I had no idea what joys and sorrows were up ahead. 

Are you tired and overwhelmed? God will give you special strength and grace for each moment of each day. From the first day of being a mother and even into their adulthood, He will help you speak and do from day to day those things that are pleasing to Him. Just ask!!

My prayer is that I will reflect Jesus to each of my children through my actions and words. I like how this poem says that my children will see 'The Saviour through her face.' This is my prayer.

  5. What a fitting poem for our family this week! With a brand new nephew born on Monday and our baby due this coming Monday, babies are on our mind. :) What a great reminder of a mother's greatest ministry--to let her children see Jesus in her life. Thank you for sharing! :)

  6. Judith...thank you for featuring me this week. What a sweet blessing. And thank you for the the link up. Have a sweet weekend in the Lord dear friend.
