Say a Little Prayer

I saw this prayer at one of my favorite quilt stores and it made me laugh. I promptly jotted it down so I could share:

Dear God,

So far today I'm doing all right. I have not gossiped, lost my temper, been greedy, nasty, grumpy, selfish, or self-indulgent. I have not whined, complained, cursed, or eaten any chocolate. I have charged nothing on my credit card.

But I will be getting out of bed in a minute, and I think that I will really need your help then.

In all seriousness, though, I'm amazed that in spite of our weakness and our failings, God will always support us. Though we fail Him constantly through our imperfections, He never fails us.

During this Christmas season I am particularly humbled that God trusts me so much. I suppose my new-found humility is brought on by the awesome task of motherhood that lies before me. I am grateful and astounded that He trusts me so much to care for a precious gift from heaven - our little girl!

And I think that I will really need His help - but you know what? I also trust Him and have enough faith in Him to know that strength and answers and direction will come.

Motherhood does require a lot of help from God (and other mothers and friends too) but it is the very best thing in the whole world! We are so happy for you! Sarah is beautiful and one lucky little girl to get such awesome parents.
