Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy…..

My confession for tonight.


in the midst of parenting.

You know the

“don’t do that,

don’t touch that,

clean that up,

go to bed,

get off of that,

eat that,

don’t eat that,

put that back.”

I lose my joy.

I forget that these little guys

and girl

are God’s blessings for us.


I get so concerned

with trying to raise them right,

that I forget

to ENJOY them.

That’s the truth and it makes me sad.

I pray that God helps me

to not be so concerned

with the future,

that I forget to live

in the present.

One thought on “Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy…..
