Prayer of my Heart

Its been so long, time has once again so quickly slipped by, I'm trying my hardest to enjoy the days and remember that they are limited.  Back in April of this year I posted this and I have been thinking about it and wanting to put it on here because soon I won't be able to find it again and I want to constantly remember that this is my heart's desire.

--I've finally stopped wanting the "American dream" for my babies. What I want for them is Jesus. 
Jesus over the perfect house with a picket fence, 
Jesus over the "right" education, 
Jesus over success, 
Jesus over keeping them close all my life. 
They are God's to call and send out to take Jesus to others. I'm praying that they come to know the fullness of heart and purpose that is the life of one surrendered to God in everything, help me prepare them Father and do your work of preparation in my heart.--April 10, 2012

I need to remember that one day they will be living out their calling, possibly far from me, and that right now I need to laugh hard at the things they say and do, and cry when I'm sentimental about what they say and do, and squeeze them tight so that I won't regret times I wasted the opportunity for loving on them later.  I pray that God will speak through me to them, and make me the wise mama they should have.  How I love you little ones.  So much.  

Help me Lord to grow into her--
"Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she smiles at the future.
She opens her mouth in wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
She looks well to the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness."--  Proverbs 31:25-27
