Pinches and Grace



How crucial it is for us as moms to ask God for moment by moment wisdom!

I wanted to pinch the two girls sitting in the front row at church.  My daughter and her friend weren't acting the way I wanted them to.   

Suddenly, an annoying little thought started to tug at the corners of my mind.  "You want your children to act perfectly because it makes you look good.  Let that go.  They don't need to be sitting up straight to hear God's message.  This is a beautiful time for grace."   

Soon my daughter's friend looked back at me.  Despite my feelings, I smiled, winked, and gave her a little wave. Then that wiggly, usually not very affectionate, middle-schooler got out of her seat.  She walked down the aisle, five rows back, and gave me a hug that preached a thousand sermons right then and there. Oh how crucial it is for me as a mom to ask God for moment by moment wisdom.
