This quote from the wonderful Billy Graham couldn’t have come on a better day for me, what a great reminder.
I have definitely made some (ok many) parenting mistakes I wish I could take back. I have learned that stress is one of my biggest factors for “losing it”. I have also learned it’s not only ok but actually a great example to my children to admit when I have been wrong. When I have acted or spoken out of anger or when I have not handled a situation so well.
In turn we should also ask God for forgiveness. For he is a God of love, mercy and grace.
James 5:16 New International Version
“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”
