My kids are out of school and I could not be happier.

However, if I am honest, I worry that I am not "good enough", not "creative" enough, not "super-mommy" enough for my deserving children.

They are such wonderful children, and they deserve an equally wonderful mother.

This is where I struggle.

I love being their mother so much. 

Yet, I still doubt myself at times. (okay, a LOT of times.) I feel inadequate, not smart enough, not creative enough, not organized enough, etc...etc. 

I don't feel like I measure up. Like, I am just not enough.

Here is the good news though: 

I recently heard the Lord speak crystal clear to me that He created ME to be their momma. Nobody else. He knew that I would be just the perfect fit for these two little precious creations. 

I am enough.

It was like He had poured cold water over my head after running a marathon. It was refreshment for my thirsty and doubting heart.

My love for them is enough. 

I don't have to be great at everything. 

I can relax that I am exactly the way HE created me to be. The momma that He knew that I would be. 

Who knew?

He did. 

If I am the one He chose for them, why would I want to be any different?

"Above all things have intense and unfailing love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins" 1 Peter 4: 8

Thank goodness for this. I can love. Oh, yes, I can love these little ones like there's no tomorrow. 

my love is enough,
