Sculpting

So today we had family group and during the session we were talking about anxiety, and the therapist posited that I had anxiety about the youngest ( probably because I was knitting a dishcloth) but I said no, that it wasn’t so much anxiety as it was perplexment, and everyone had a little laugh. But really as a parent aren’t we all trying to figure out how to guard, guide and direct our children or sculpt them into being the best possible version of themselves??? I further commented that when a sculptor looks at a marble stone, he sees not the block of stone but the final work, the vision of what this marble will be when finished and then begins to chip and sculpt and form that vision. Now having said this humans are different and recombinant DNA is by far the most complex medium in which to work for sure!!! And yes sometimes our visions as parents gets turned around and flipped forty ways from Sunday because of recombinant DNA. I see the youngest from a mother’s eyes and see the potential, while at the same time try to figure out how to usurp this disease of schizophrenia and help the youngest become the best he can be and some days are lost in this perplexing disease, others are quite normal in the guiding and directing ( I have been told  have a general’s forceful demeanor at times lol) .

So my prayer for today is the while I am transforming and hopefully becoming more Christlike that  I will be patient as other transformations are going on around me and that I will recognize these as holy transformations even if I do not for the life of me understand them but acknowledge that God can knit all things together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose, and that He is immutable, and remains in all things , over all things and through all things.AMEN
