As I sit here at my computer and try to think of a specific way God has "wowed" me so I can share, I find that I can't stop thinking about how much the little everyday "wows" matter. Sometimes it's in waking up and looking into the sleepy eyes of your children as they stumble into the kitchen for breakfast or a good morning hug. It never ceases to amaze me that God has chosen me to mother these four beautiful boys.
Sometimes it's in how tired you are, physically or emotionally, yet God still gives you the strength to encourage your husband as he heads off to work, leaving you alone with the house once again. And then how He gets you through another mundane day and shows you that even if no one else gives you the affirmation you so desperately desire that you are an adequate person: mother, wife, sister, daughter, and friend in His eyes. It's times like these I lift my eyes unto the hills, and remember where my help comes from; it comes from the Lord, the maker of Heaven & Earth. Wow, God! Thank you for this reminder; my adequacy comes from you and you alone.
