We’ve been talking a lot about our Grace Filled Momma tee on social because, well, we love it, It makes a fantastic Mother’s Day gift, and apparently everyone else really likes it too!!
When Elise and I were working on this tee back in October (Wait, wasn’t that like a week ago? Where does the time go. 🤦🏻♀️), we knew we wanted a tee that expressed our hearts and was a reflection of our lives as mothers. And while I desperately want to print a tee that says “this mom runs on Zoloft and Xanax,” I’m not sure others would appreciate my level of crazy.
But I try. Oh God knows I try. I read my Bible, I pray and cry to God all the time, I reach out for support, I spend hours and hours in therapy for my kids and myself, just trying to see if I can get even a little bit better at this mom gig. But that right there, that’s the kicker. No matter how hard I try, no matter how many experts I consult, no matter how many prescriptions I have to control my anxiety, I can’t and won’t survive motherhood without His saving grace. It’s the answer, the silver bullet, the magic formula for being a “good mom.” It’s what let’s me off the hook and allows me to make mistakes. It’s what teaches my kids the lesson that matters most. That I am far from perfect and no amount of effort will ever make me perfect, but only by faith in Jesus Christ, who in his infinite mercy poured himself out on the cross so that I might be saved by His Grace and marked as His child forever.
My kids may see me lose my mind on a daily basis, but you know what else they see? Momma in her bed every morning when they wake up with her Bible open, they see me in Bible study and counseling striving to apply his Word to my life, they see me admitting my mistakes and apologizing and asking them for forgiveness. They don’t see a perfect momma, far from it!! They see a grace-filled momma that is trying her hardest to be a reflection of her Savior. And isn’t that what we all want more than anything else?
We hope you all have a fantastic Mother’s Day weekend!! And please know that Elise and I are always here to match your crazy, cheer you on, and pray with you and for you!
