My bathroom is my favorite place to seep my emotions. It’s often mopped with tears of frustration, hopelessness, and loneliness.
My mint green room (the one I’ve been wanting to re-paint for years) is my slice of New York cheese cake.
It’s the place I run to when the loud angry voices from my marriage tell me we’re failing.
It’s where I question why I have no friends.
My mint ice cream room is my safe place when my kids touch my last nerve.
But, honestly, in the loneliness and craziness of motherhood, grace is the last thing I want to give.
So when exactly should we give grace?
Welcome to episode #12! Oh it’s so good to be back! Momma’s I’ve really had to focus giving myself a dose of grace lately. For those of you who don’t follow me, I am just getting back in the groove of things after having my son.
This is my fourth child and I’ve somehow forgotten the added exhaustion of having a cute snuggly baby. And needless to say, the full strength of a freshly brewed coffee also slipped back into my existence.
Giving myself grace has always been hard. Giving myself grace when dinner is served through the drive-thru, or as a mixture of things in my bare cabinets.
Yes, I’ve prolonged going to the grocery way too many times.
Or in the moments I feel I don’t deserve grace. When I can’t seem to control my anger and my kids get the scolding mom I told myself I’d never be.
But, in the midst of my tender emotions, giving others grace is just as hard.
When others hurt me, or when I see how my relationships are not what I desire, grace is the last thing my heart wants to give.
Maybe you can relate. When we feel our husband doesn’t understand us. Or, our friends aren’t present in our lives when we need them to be.
When our relationships don’t meet our expectations, our reactions don’t greet grace...
