We all know that it is human nature to go against God's will at some point or another. We have all lied at some time, or maybe even cheated. But I never knew how deeply it would hurt my so called, "Mommy heart" to see my child hurt by her own self doing.

No, this isn't a big deal. She actually didn't even lie, and she is over the top kind of sleepy.

On the walk home tonight Charli started crying as she looked at the barn. Explaining to me that she did not mean to lie and say that she was finished scoopin' the barn. Oh dear mercy, I just wanted to grab her up right then and there telling her that she never even told me she was finished. I was the one who told her that she could finish up tomorrow if need be, but to still work hard on it. She was incredibly upset an continued to tell me that she was only hungry and that was her reason in stopping.

As we prayed together I listened to her thank The Lord for her blessings and asking for safety of her Daddy, Gunner an Ranger while they are away. How much sweeter can a precious prayer get I though to myself? Then I realized the most precious one of all is when we ask for forgiveness. This hit me hard as I realized that I was in a God moment with my daughter.

I took the time to explain sins as I have in the past then explained how we ask forgiveness as Christians. For her to see that her possible lying could be forgiven and her slate could be wiped clean was such a relief to her tender heart. And yes, Charli Beth does have a tender heart. Even when explaining to her that she cannot just lie and get away with it, that we are human and will make mistakes she seemed to be taking it all in.

As I came to bed still feeling like I am on cloud 9 because I know The Lord is working in her heart I just feel the need to request prayer from every possible aspect. I request that you remember us as we guide, teach and love her. Her family, Sunday school and her vacation bible school that is coming up next week. This is such a precious time and I pray that these moments keep filling her heart.

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
