And the glory of it all is He came here for the rescue of us all…

Great song!  If you don’t know it then you need to go buy David Crowder Band’s album either “Remedy” or “Remedy Club Tour.”  One is the studio version and the other is the live version.  It is a great song though, in that it talks of how God was there in the beginning and He will be there in the end.  The chorus talks of how it is so glorious that God came here to rescue us, and believe me we needed to be rescued.  But that is not the real reason for my post today.

I guess that the body of my post today is really more of a response to my wife’s post for today.  I think that something crazy happens in a woman’s brain when she becomes a mother.  She suddenly becomes incredibly hard on herself.  Kim is a fabulous mother!  She does so much to care for Anna Grace and me at the same time.  She has this mindset, however, that she is failing in all categories.  This is simply not the case.  She does a great job of balancing everything that she has going on in her life.  Motherhood, wifehood, studenthood, and everything else in between.  She is the best wife that a man could ever ask for.  She is so loving and so faithful.  She is the greatest mother that a child could ask for.  She provides, teaches, and care for AG like none other.  Unfortunately, Kim is often blinded to the fact that she is doing a great job.  She sees a few mishaps and the world is falling apart for some reason.  I love her with every fiber of my being, and I want her to know that I think that she does a wonderful job.  She said in her post today that she thought that she had failed in several categories of motherhood.  I think that makes me want to pinch her.  She has not failed in any aspect, even in the slightest.  I understand that you are always your own worst critic, but sometimes it can be taken to the max.  Kim, you are a great wife, mother, and friend!  I love you very, very, very, very much, and you are doing a fine job of caring for our family.

  1. haha…stop exposing me!

  2. She’s always been a perfectionist…which is simultaneously a blessing and a curse. So she works hard but is never satisfied with the results. Jason, this is a lifelong assignment for you but you’re doing a great job of encouraging her to ease up on her expectations.
