As you know I have been doing a Bible Study for the teen girls on Wednesdays. Well, this past Saturday they spent the night at my house. It was a lot of fun and the girls all got along great. I should have known it was only a matter of time.
On Sunday, they all came to church with me. One of the young ladies and my daughter, Amber, do not get along. They had managed to avoid each other most of the weekend, but by Sunday afternoon venom was flying. It was a mess and I was angry. I was angry with both girls, but mostly with my daughter. I had hoped that she had learned to keep 'quiet'. Not so much.
Monday I was dealing with the fall out. The young lady who has been coming to Bible Study on Wednesdays told me off and then told me she would not be coming anymore and of course, my daughter feels as if none of it is her fault and that I am not backing her. I was beginning to feel very 'defeated'.
My eldest daughter, Sam, called me when she got home from school. She was very excited as she was filling out an application for the Bible college she wants to attend. As we were getting ready to get off the phone she said "Mom, you're doing a really good job." I asked her what she meant and she said "Being a mom and doing this Bible Study with the girls. You are doing a great job."
I wanted to cry as we got off the phone. I wonder if she knows how much life she spoke into my weary bones?
Thank you my Sammie! You have no idea how much I needed that! Obviously God did and He used you to speak to me. Thanks for listening to Him. I love you so very much!
