I just love to hear my children laughing. It is music to my ears.

Super Mom vs. Abiding Mom
A friend of mine, who encourages me and supports me in prayer, sent the following to me recently. I wanted to share it here, in hopes that others would be encouraged on the path of motherhood.
A super mom does. An abiding mom IS. Psalm 46:10
A super mom tries to impress others. An abiding mom pleases the Lord. Ephesians 5:10 and Proverbs 29:25
A super mom is controlled by an agenda, such as curriculum and schedules. An abiding mom is controlled by the Holy Spirit, and uses curriculum and schedules as tools for orderliness so she’s more free to follow the Spirit. Galatians 5:22-26
A super mom’s self-worth is found in her accomplishments. An abiding mom’s self-worth is found in an accurate view of who she is in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:10
A super mom’s peace is found in the “perfect” environment. An abiding mom’s peace is found in Jesus in the midst of any storm. Isaiah 26:3
A super mom is discouraged by failure. An abiding mom’s failures remind her that God’s strength is made perfect in weakness. II Corinthians 12:9-10
A super mom expects perfection from herself and others. An abiding mom practices grace with herself and others. Ephesians 4:32
A super mom teaches her kids to be good. An abiding mom teaches her kids to be Godly. Proverbs 22:6
A super mom is frustrated with her lack of spiritual fruit. An abiding mom abides in Christ and bears much fruit. John 15:5
A super mom does things with her children. An abiding mom builds a relationship with her children. Deuteronomy 6:6-7
A super mom’s perspective is based on what is seen. An abiding mom’s perspective is based on what is unseen. Colossians 3:2
A super mom chooses quantity of activities. An abiding mom chooses the most excellent Way. I Corinthians 13
A super mom’s kids may recall how busy she always is. An abiding mom’s children rise up and call her blessed. Proverbs 31:28

I decided to make my own wheat bread after we ran out of the store bought kind. I know…I’m on a roll! A friend of mine sent me a super easy recipe for wheat bread and I had to give it a try. It was so simple and something anyone can do. If you can bake a cake, you can make this bread.
