So what happens to us when we wake up and realize our family that we prayed for, yearned to have, and strive to keep all our ducks in a row in order to build....and then you turn around one day and realize it is so far from perfect?
HA HA HA HA!!!! That can be squashed in less than a millasecond!
Instead we have to dig deep and say - God I am not sure why I keep thinking that this will get easier with time. Why can't I just stop being selfish, why can't I just stop my anger from taking over, why can't I just be a better parent, why can't my children just obey without a fight, why can't they see how much I love them.
Oh my how much adoption and parenting reflects the Lord's relationship with us. Except HE IS PERFECT. That is a pretty big difference and the reason we have to let go of perfect.
We all need healing in many different ways. We all crave the touch of our Savior. In order to attain this we have to let go of perfect and just simply seek HIM in ALL THINGS & IN ALL SITUATIONS!
Here is to me reminding myself to let go of perfect :).
