After getting several comments about my first post, although knowing where they are coming from and expecting such comments, I definitely feel the need to respond. I stand by every single thing I said. Not only is what I said what I truly believe, but it is BIBLICAL. Telling a mother that she does not have to feel overwhelmed is not "judgemental". Telling a mother that she needs a dose of reality at times is not "Holier than thou". Defensiveness is our natural response based on our own pride. Maybe you need to search out what it is about my words that were offensive to you and why? If you don't particularly enjoy being a mother, yes, you will become defensive against a mother who says that she thinks it's the best job in the world.
Christ said that as believers we are to be judged by our fruit. If you are not a Christian I do not expect you to agree with my posts. If you are a Christian who does not agree with my posts then I am inclined to ask you why? What is it that you do not agree with about living in the Spirit? What do you not agree with about acting out of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, and self control. Do you really believe that as a Christian we are called to live our lives as mothers overwhelmed, emotionally empty, angry, and wishing we were doing something else? Do you not agree that if we are living out of the Spirit then we cannot be acting out of our fleshly emotions? The scriptures say that a good tree cannot bear bad fruit. If your role as a mother is bearing bad fruit, then you need to take a serious look at why you are not instead bearing good fruit.
