After a recommendation from a friend, and a free movie channel weekend, I watched Moms Night Out. It’s a comedy about a group of three mom friends who are stressed to the max and in desperate need of a childless girls night out. Long story short, everything that could go wrong does and during their crazy night they end up in a tattoo shop getting advice from a heavily tattoed biker named Bones.
As one of the women is mourning her night gone wrong and her failures as a mom Bones drops this wisdom. “It’s beautiful to watch one of God’s creations just doing what it was made to do. Ya’ll spend so much time beating yourselves up. I doubt the good Lord made a mistake giving your kiddos the mom he did.”
Huh…..roll that one around in your doubt filled, anxiety ridden and critical head for a few minutes.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
