“So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” Hebrews 4:16 NLT
Guess what?! This is real life right here. It doesn’t start off looking this way but ends up like this by the following morning. My favorite part of this picture is the donkey falling off the bed. 😂 Most days I feel like I’m the donkey falling off in life as a mother and wife. Right now diapers are everywhere clean and dirty. Life is unorganized and messy. Most photos I post there is a mess behind me. You read right, before I post a picture I make sure the back ground is clean but the truth is my house is chaotic! Life and exhaustion get in the way. However, as much as I hate the mess there is no where I’d rather be then right in the middle of it with my two babies and husband! We do lots of fun projects and science but we also watch a lot of TV. There were months during pregnancy when Ellie and I sat on the couch ALL DAY watching TV because I couldn’t function. We had to hire someone to help us get the house in order just so my mother in law could come and help me clean it before Jay arrived. I’m not proud of any of this but I won’t try and hide it either. It’s when we admit that we can’t do life alone that we can begin to move past our pride and accept the help offered. It’s just a season and I’m learning to be content in this season. No one has a picture perfect life. Remember that when you compare your life to the pictures you see on social media. We are all a perfect mess in need of Gods grace. Don’t ever forget that you are not alone in your struggles. To keep it short and simple: we all have moments when we feel we are like this toy donkey falling off the bed of life.
