Children Change Everything - Week 1

My life changed 100% when I became a mom. Yours did too, probably. I’m not just referring to the amount of laundry, cooking and cleaning I have to do, now that I care for two extra bodies. I also care for two minds and two spiritual beings. 

Personal devotionals and attending church took on a new depth. Working outside the home lost its appeal. Priorities changed. My worldview changed.

A gentleman who is childless by choice asked me, “Is it a different life, now that you are a mother?” I replied, “It’s not just a different life. It’s a different planet. I experience life with a different focus.”

My life, in fact, is made up of two eras: BC (before children) and AD (after delivery).

Psalm 139:13 says, “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.” Becoming a mom inspired me with awe and transformed me. I pray I don’t lose that awe when I deal with my children daily.
