Wisdom comes from following God’s pattern for living, having plenty of common sense and doing what is right. Your actions and reactions have an affect on your home’s thermometer. When I was in my intense mothering years, and perhaps feeling a bit discouraged, I would ask myself, “Am I doing better than this time last year”? If my answer was “yes,” then I just kept plugging along; however, if I answered “no,” then I knew I needed to change something. Ask God for help dear sweet Mom, whatever your age and stage in parenting, because, everything matters and everyday matters too.
But I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead. (Philippians 3:13, NLT)
