How incredibly blessed I am to be Mom to Caleb and Luke. I recently had an epiphany about parenting that I probably should have had before my boys were born.
|Luke on the last day of Co-op.|
I thought, for the longest time, that I could keep my boys safe at all times and that I could make everything okay. That my boys needed me to watch over them and that only I would provide the best care for them.

|At the gardens with Dad.|
So thankful that God is their heavenly Father. He loves these boys more than me. He watches over them every second of the day when I cannot. I do not have everything these boys need. He does. I do not always know what's best for them. He does. I do not always love them with a perfect, patient, long-suffering love. He does. What a comfort to know God has Caleb and Luke in His perfect care.

So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23:6
