It is difficult being a parent. Sometimes we can be too harsh, and other times too lenient. Sometimes we mean well, only to have everything blow up in our faces. Still, other times everything seems disastrous, but miraculously things come together. Mom, Dad, our kids make mistakes and need our grace. We make mistakes too and need God’s grace. Breathe. You will never love your kiddos more than God loves you.

For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” ~ Romans 8:15
