Super Mom


I came upon this list below from 'Confessions of a homeschooler' and had to share it. I admit there are too many times I do what I can to be a super mom but want to strive to be a more abiding mom.

Super Mom Abiding Mom
Does Is (Psalm 46:10)
Tries to impress others Pleases the Lord (Eph. 5:10, Proverbs 29:25)
Is controlled by an agenda (curriculum, schedule, etc) Is controlled by the Holy Spirit: (Gal. 5:22-26) (Uses curriculum & schedules as tools for orderliness so she’s more free to follow the spirit)
Her self worth is found in her accomplishments (clean house, perfect kids, the perfect bulletin boards, etc.) Her self worth is found in an accurate view of who she is in Christ Jesus (Eph 2:10)
Her peace is found in the “perfect” environment Her peace is found in Jesus in the midst of any storm (Is 26:3)
She is discouraged by failure Failure reminds her that God’s strength is made perfect in weakness (2 Cor. 12:9-10)
She expects perfection from herself and others She practices grace with herself and others (Eph 4:32)
She teaches her kids to be good She teaches her kids to be Godly (Proverbs 22:6)
She is frustrated with her lack of spiritual fruit She abides in Christ and bears much fruit (John 15:5)
She does things with her children She builds a relationship with her children (Deut 6:6-7)
Her perspective is based on what is seen Her perspective is based on what is unseen (Col 3:2)
She chooses quantity of activities She chooses the most excellent Way (I Cor 13)
Her kids may recall how busy she always is. Her children rise and call her blessed. (Prov. 31:28)

I enjoyed looking up each verse and reading he entire passage. I really have to make a point to make daily devotions priority in my life. Sometimes a little daily bread reading is just not enough.

My dad helped Jacob build a snow fort. It is HUGE! They were outside for quite a while building it together. One thing that makes MB snow different from NS snow is that it is constantly melting and cooling with the sun so the snow has a hard ice layer which makes it great for using as 'building blocks' for making forts or even igloos :D NS snow is more wet and packey - great for making snow men.
