Just five minutes.
Unscripted. Unedited. Real.
My Real thoughts of the word…..REAL
Often I try to portray myself as having it all together, especially around those who frown upon on our family size.
And I get a lot of frowns…
My pride gets in the way of me being, “REAL!” It gets the better part of me.
I hide behind the dark crimson curtain and pretend I can do this motherhood thing without blemish.
The truth is…I don’t have it all together. I am a screw up! A “REAL” sinner saved only by His grace alone!
I am the Mommy who at times..
drives through McDonald’s when I don’t feel like cooking
puts on the TV when I want to check my email
puts dirty socks on my children on occasion
gives my children pop tarts
lets my babies sleep with me
screams without legitimate reasons
doesn’t tell my children I love them enough
drinks a glass of wine when weary
doesn’t always listen attentively
doesn’t keep every piece of artwork
anxious for bedtime
forgets to cut nails
and so many more doesn’t and forgets…
I am the one who does all these terrible things! This is the REAL me.
I am so grateful that I have a God who unconditionally loves me for the REAL me. I don’t have to hide behind the dark crimson curtain anymore because He knows the REAL me and has redeemed and released me of my imperfectness. He has made me REAL, so I will realize…I need a Savior!
I do not deserve His new mercies everyday.
Let us be REAL and share with one another our strength and our weaknesses in the blogosphere!
May iron sharpen iron! Please leave a comment, so I can get to ♥ the REAL you.
