|Oksana and Alexander on the day we went to court to become their parents|
Mr. Beaver shared a quote from John Piper recently that I have found very encouraging:
"Mom (never enough) + God (infinitely enough) = Mom enough"
As I anticipate next week's surgery and the recovery afterwards, this "math equation" has become even more precious to me. I can never be all my children need in a mom in my own power, but during this season of chronic pain, surgery and recovery that's especially true. It's okay, though. God is meeting my children's needs. The same God who calls Himself "Father to the Fatherless" is also more than willing to help our family during this season of hardship. Mr. Beaver and I need only lean into our saving, rescuing God and He makes us "parents enough" by His abundant grace!
