Potty Put Away

And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end. Luke 1:33 (NKJV)

I put the baby potty chairs away today. One would never assume that would be an emotional activity. But I’m sure some mother’s can relate.

Unlike Jesus Christ who is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8) We are not. Neither so are our children. And sometimes that reality hurts. Especially if I remain in the focus of these girls being “my'” babies.

At times like this I cherish the little moments when my children are just that, children. Be it a four year old anxiously awaiting the arrival of St. Nicholas and in full belief of the “magic” or the seven year old who realized the truth yet yearns so to help her sister believe longer.

I read 2 Corinthians 5:17 to focus on today and that I am made new and read Matthew 6:34 when my mind jumps to tomorrow with less than hopeful anticipation.


Lord I thank you that yesterday is indeed yesterday. I praise you for today and embrace what it holds. And as for tomorrows Lord… when eternity is with you I do indeed look forward to tomorrow.

  1. So hard to let go of the past when it means watching our babies grow up way too fast.
