It’s been a pondering day of sorts. A lot of different conversations, situations, and activities. I’ve listened to opinions and advice from and for various people on various subjects, and a number of good points have been raised. Some not so good ones, too. But the bottom line is this: I am accountable for what God has asked me to do. Me. Just me.
I am not the fixer of all things, nor do I want to be. I don’t have all the answers. I wish I did.
I can’t make decisions for my husband or my children or my friends. I can help wherever possible, but ultimately, it’s their choice. I am responsible only inasmuch as God has asked me to help, and as long as I’ve been obedient in that regard, I’m done.
So when I go to bed tonight, I will simply lay all of today’s conversations before my heavenly Father and let Him do what He does best – be God.

I love this. This is something God has been teaching me for a long time. I can have such a tendancy to being a ‘rescuer’, but then I carry the choices they make personally. And I have only started on this mothering thing. I would take the wisdom you have gained any day!
