I have learned so much about my relationship with Christ through my kids. I wonder if God ever gets frustrated when I do something I'm not supposed to do. When I do something good or learn a new task like Eden or Josiah, is God pleased with me? It's made me wonder at ways I can bring glory to God through being a wife and mother, but more importantly, being a worshipper of God. Just resting in Him like Josiah does with me. You get to have some pretty amazing conservations with God during those long nights.
There has to be a reason that Scriptures describe God as "Abba Father." He is our loving father and a great example to a tired and worn out Momma who just long for a few minutes of quite or a full nights sleep. These are such sweet times of surrender.
