When I was little it always made me nervous when my mommie put on your make-up in the car. I couldn’t quite figure out why she didn’t do at home. I always said…that won’t be me. Well a few years ago it became me, and I got it! She more than likely was up late for some reason and her 3 silly girls probably were all over the place that morning. There was no time for make-up in the bathroom.
As children we tend to declare quickly that we won’t be like our parents and we do all we can to stop it from happening. But the truth is we are a part of our parents…raised by them. So some things just can’t be erased. As we mature some of us continue to fight what’s innate (usually due to fear) while others embrace those
2 Timothy 1:5-7 reminds us that what lies within us is similar to those things of our ancestors, and fear of anything is not of God. Therefore, every time I put on my make-up in the car I am thankful for the beautiful mother I have and hope that one day I will be able to live up to the standard she has set for me, all the while praying that I don’t mess up my make-up or get in an accident. Lol!
Lord, I thank you for giving us awesome parents that taught us how lead our lives’ as Christ directs us to. I pray that we will be able to draw upon their teachings so that we can plant bountiful seeds in our children.
For this we are thankful!
