Today I am raising my daughter (and my sons). 'Tomorrow' she will be raising her children. I have been studying Proverbs 31 (yeah, that woman we love to hate). It has been GOOD for me... I have growing to do. Right now the convicting question that I am hearing the Holy Spirit asking me is: "Am I spending my time the way I hope Robyn spends hers while she is raising my grandchildren?" !!! Answer: YIKES!! Some days, yes. Other days, NO.
How is she seeing and experiencing me spend my days. Am I spending more time nurturing them or being 'busy'? Do they see too much of the back of my head while I am on the computer?? Do they feel like they are interrupting me while I am busy at tasks?? Do I make them feel second fiddle to all the things I do? Am I more focused on ME or THEM?? Am I wasting precious time I have with them?? Am I TRAINING her up to be the home manager of her home?? Am I equipping her with the tools and skills she will need? By watching me does she know what is the most important?? ON and ON the questions go!
I have always heard that things are 'caught not taught' when it comes to parents passing things on to their children. How am I measuring up?? The Proverbs 31 does not 'Eat the bread of idleness'... do I?? Hard questions.... Am I being WISE in the way I use my days, my energy, my resources??
To read more please visit Tammi, for the True Woman series. I haven't kept up with it like I should... but I am doing a Proverbs 31 study with my Friday morning 'mom's group'. Proverbs 31 is such a GOOD study... not pain free, but good! Do you love her?? I am starting to......
Have a BLESSED day, BE a BLESSING!
