One Hundred Lessons is my story. It’s the heart of my experience in motherhood and all the things, well 100 of the things, I want my children to read and remember. These bits are my hope for the future and my cherished memories of the past. Most of all, they are the beautiful moments of today that I never want us to forget.
You can read all the post from the One Hundred Lessons series here.
But they are good.
And I want them to believe that. I believe you are good. Do you hear me? You are good.
When you believe you are good, when you follow your conscience and the Lord’s soft whispers on your heart – you do good.
And doing good is what we need more of in the world.
So, no matter what you did yesterday or the bad that crossed your mind today, choose to do good now, today. I believe you’re good and I know you’ll make the right choice. Every moment is a turning point to do the right thing. To let the good win. And you can do it. Sometimes it is hard. Sometimes it is ugly. Sometimes it seems impossible. But, YOU CAN DO IT.
As humans we’re full of sin. We make mistakes. More than we ever want to. But God has called us beyond our sin. To find good, to do good and to be good. Celebrate those small, beautiful things that embody goodness. Let it be your calling to follow the little whispers you feel in your heart. To reach out to those with tears, to feed those who are hungry, to be the listening ear to those who are hurting.
Your goodness will never save you, that’s a whole other conversation. What your goodness will do is shine a light in a very dark world. And you, my little lights will do much shining. I just know.
Be good, my babies. I believe you’re good. Believe you are good too.
