The Big Mistake Women Make When the Stick Turns Blue

There is an old hymn that says, “the ground is level at the foot of the cross.” No achievement can make us stand taller within the cross’ shadow and no failing can cause us to sink lower. We are all wretches in need of amazing grace.

We think it’s different. Sometimes, we want it to be different. We want there to be degrees of sin so that we can somehow feel better about our standing before a holy God. But you and I? We are not that different.

Motherhood is another of life’s equalizers. A miracle that should bring us together.

And yet, we look at one another and attempt to place one another in the appropriate group. This, sisters, is a tragic mistake.

She’s into that all natural thing.

Her kids are homeschooled/public schooled/private schooled.

She only wanted one kid.
