This is our first Mother’s Day and only one word comes to mind;
Thankful that God sent your daddy to me to be my husband and best friend.
Thankful that God chose me to be your mama.
Thankful I get to spend every second with you and witness your milestones, even the little ones like when you noticed your legs for the first time in the car seat as you kicked them back and forth.
Thankful that even though my Bible is probably under a pile of laundry somewhere, God extends His grace to me over and over again.
Motherhood is probably the hardest thing I have encountered in my life so far but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. God has taught me how to be patient in this new (busy) season of life. Our home may never be clean again and I couldn’t tell you the last time I washed my hair but one thing is for sure…
You will always be surrounded with love.
You could not even begin to comprehend how much we love you.
Not only will you be loved by your daddy and I, but also by a Sovereign God.
He knew you before He formed you in my womb. He designed you just for us. He knows every hair on your head and every move you’ll ever make. He is constant and you can always count on Him. He will never leave you or forsake you. We may fail you in this life but He never will. Jesus is the only one who can truly satisfy you.
God didn’t give you to us, He loaned you to us. To raise you to the best of our ability.
You don’t understand any of this right now but some day you will.
I want to make a vow to you in honor of our first Mother’s Day.
- Always Be Joyful- I will strive to be positive in everything. Always uplifting you with kind words.
- Never Stop Praying – I will pray for you and with you every day.
- Be Thankful – I will teach you that even though our circumstances aren’t always going to be perfect, we need to be thankful for each other and all that we have.
“Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God.” Philippians 1:3
