parenting sucks

(Originally published by Nattie on April 10, 2007)
I am so not a good parent. I often wonder, “why did God give me these kids?” They deserve so much more.
Then I watched “Gideon Tuba Warrior,” which has a part where Gideon says that God chose him for such a time as this. And I think about Esther. Or Moses. Or all the sundry people that God chose to do great things. They weren’t all that fantastic. Moses stuttered. Esther was a Jew in a time when Jews were hunted and killed. God still chose them. They could do great things with God’s help.
That is when I realized that I’ve been trying to parent under my own power and that isn’t that fantastic right now. So Phil 4:13 for pete’s sake.
I definitely need it. Jonathan was suspended. Again.

Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am. ~ Phillipians 4:13, the Message

    2 months left. WOW. Poor doll. No wonder she was having so much trouble parenting. I wish, somehow, we had known.
