always my babies

As I lay watching our 2 daughters sleep, I can't help but feel a sense of worry.  I don't know if I would be the same if they were boys but I have girls and from what I know, society put a lots of pressure on girl.  I want to instill confident, self worth/value, and compassion in them.  There's only so much hubby and I can do as parents, their friends, the people they meet, and the world around them will also be contributing in shaping who they are.  Right now they are my babies, but in time, they will be growing and developing in women with their own mind.  By then I no longer can protect them, shield them under my arms, blocking their ears from harsh words like "you're fat" or "you're skinny". 

I'm a mom, I will always be their mom, no matter how old they get.  My heart and mind always be thinking of them, aching for them and worrying about them.  I turned to the Lord in time like this.  For I know I'm limited, I can only do so much, I can't tell my daughters what path to take but the good Lord will.  I want His Words to be carved in their heart so no matter where they are in life, what situation they got themselves in, when they alone, feel I can't understand them, they know they can count on Him to comfort and deliver them.  I pray they will come to love Jesus as much as their daddy and mommy.  I will not force them to follow Him.  When it comes to faith, it has to be genuine in order to have genuine relationship, to fully experiencing God.  I hope we will be a good example for them, be good ambassadors for Jesus, that they too will ask Jesus in their heart.  It's all that I desired for them.
