Honoring Our Parents

As a child, I could never imagine what it meant to be a mother. Now that I am a mother, I appreciate my mom so much more.

The love that I have for Gia is indescribable! I can only imagine how much my mom loves me and my sister. I can only imagine the thoughts and the plans that she had/has for us. Although she’s shared some of them with us, and has even tried to steer us in that way, we ultimately made/make our own decisions. How hard could that have been for her?

I appreciate my mom so much more now that I have my own child.

When I was younger, my mom would frequently bring up Eph. 6:1- 3

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise—“so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”

She would really emphasize the obey you parents part! Haha! I love her.

Now that I have my own child, I find myself copying her and raising my child similar to how she raised me and my sister. And that’s OK. I want to make her proud. I want her feel honored to have me as her daughter. I know that she does. I know that she is proud of me. I know that I am still here for somewhat obey her words in the Lord. And for that, I am thankful.

    Obedience is such an important walk with Christ. Teaching my daughter about obedience and helping her understand the why, especially in the current season, has been SO difficult. For both of us. Great post!
