There is a time and season for every part of motherhood . . . 

A time to have a sweet newborn in your arms for the first time, and a time to let them go out into the world to be their own person.

There is a time to plant seeds of faith into their hearts, and a time to uproot sinfulness and show them there is another way.

There is a time to weep when motherhood is overwhelming, and there is a time to laugh with your children so hard you cry.

There is a time to mourn when your child’s heart is broken, and there is a time to dance together in your living room with them when they are filled with joy.

There is a time to embrace them with all your might, and there is a time to let them have space when they need to figure things out on their own.

There is a time to give them guidance on decisions, and there is a time to be silent to let them decide on their own and pray they find their way.

There is a time to be their everything, and there is a time to step away and let them fly.
