Word-Filled Wednesday - Psalm 19:14

A quiet moment last summer, with my youngest son, Timothy...

"Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer." ~ Psalm 19:14


At times I question whether I've said the right thing, or made the right decision, where my children are concerned. Sometimes years after the fact I wonder, had I done this or that differently, would they be more self-assured, more directed, more content in their lives? These are the times when - if not for my faith - I would drown in a sea of self-inflicted mommy guilt. As much as I would love to be the perfect mother, always knowing exactly the right thing to say or do, I'm only human. So I continue on doing the best I can, in all my human fallibility, praying for God's forgiveness and guidance in all things, but especially in raising my children.

That's a wonderful picture and verse. I may have to try a Word-filled Wednesday in the future. I've been doing the Wordless Wednesdays for a while now.

What a lovely picture for you to cherish. You picked a great verse and your post is so true. I think most of us feel like that from time to time (and you know anyone who doesn't probably should). Great WFW!
