Then something crazy amazing happened in my life. Four precious princesses walked through the door of our home straight into my heart. 13, 5, 5 and almost 1 (tomorrow). My life turned upside down, right side up.
As foster momma to these precious girls, I have no idea what tomorrow may hold. "How long will they be with our family?" People ask all the time, meaning well, and I have no answer. Maybe another day, a few more months, a year, this momma heart has no way of knowing.
Straight up in the midst of a year of battling to know. of dealing with the uncertainty of it all. of worry trying to hold tight to my heart. God washed it all away with this ...
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." - Matthew 6:34
In all honesty, I knew this verse, highlighted like a rainbow, knew this verse. I could quote it. sing it. talk about it. But when I read it in the midst of our foster adventure this year, it took root and I began to live it.
My girls need a momma for today.
A momma for today, to change diapers, fold laundry, and scrub pots.
A momma for today, to hug them, sing with them, and tuck them in at night.
A momma for today, to wipe runny noses, kiss skinned knees, and give extra snuggles.
Tomorrow will come. I'll be ready for that day. But my home simply needs a momma for today. And that I can do.
And as always, I would be crazy honored to have you link up with momma notes. I jot some on Mondays, but you can link up any day of the week (I get the momma, filled to to the brim, schedules) Just mom. Sharing our notes. Creating a melody.
