I (Virginia) had my very first mother's day on Sunday. Being a mom is a wonderful new part of life and at the same time, a great responsibility. It makes me think about discipleship and how it's a lot like parenting. When someone get's saved I can't just expect that person to survive spiritually on their own; just like I can't expect Josiah to suddenly get up a walk, or talk in sentences right away. It's a careful process and takes patience. As Josiah is growing and changing all the time, i'm learning to enjoy every new thing and encourage him in it. Spiritually or naturally I pray that God gives me the grace to be a good mom. What a privilege it is!
