Anne has been doing more baking.
I love it!
For so many reasons.
The biggest one, no not so I can eat it, but it’s a definite plus, is what it gives her.
She is the 3rd daughter and I have often noticed it’s tough for her to feel she has any giftings.
How easy it is to look at others’ gifts and miss our own.
Baking is a chance for Anne to shine in a gift God has given.
And it has been a moment of learning for me.
I’m not helping.
Frankly, I can’t.
My body has simply not allowed me to.
It has been a lesson for both of us.
Anne is learning to try on her own.
She’s working without help.
I’m learning to trust God to teach her through the process.
I’m learning to let go of my ideals on motherhood.
Because as a Mom, I keep thinking I am the one who guides and directs.
I am learning to rest in God’s instead.
How much better to allow the Lord to teach and train?
To know when to speak and when to be silent.
To know when to lend a helping hand and when to step back.
To know that ultimately Jesus loved them first and will always love them most.
I am so thankful for these moments.
How Great is the Lord God!
May His glory fill the earth.
