this is something i just sent in an email to someone who is fast becoming a very dear friend. i thought all of us here in "the circle" could glean some encouragement from it. nothing astounding. something we all know. but it's nice to be reminded sometimes.
"i think our toughest job as wives and mothers is to just let God do it and know that we fight our biggest battles on our knees."
the context was that it's harder to just give things up and pray, which is ultimately the scenario in which God changes things for the better. we'd rather take a crack or 900 at the problem first. we like to fix.
can i get an "amen?"
