Reflections of a Mother

I gave you life, but cannot live it for you.

I can teach you things, but I cannot make you learn.

I can give you directions, but I cannot be there to lead you.

I can allow you freedom, but I cannot account for it.

I can take you to church, but I cannot make you believe.

I can teach you right from wrong, but I cannot always decide for you.

I can buy you beautiful clothes, but I cannot make you beautiful inside.

I can offer you advice, but I cannot accept it for you.

I can give you love, but I cannot force it upon you.

I can teach you to share, but I cannot make you unselfish.

I can teach you respect, but I cannot force you to show honor.

I can advise you about friends, but cannot choose them for you.

I can tell you the facts of life, but I can't build your reputation.

I can tell you about drink, but I can't say "no" for you.

I can warn you about drugs, but I can't prevent you from using them.

I can tell you about lofty goals, but I can't achieve them for you.

I can teach you about kindness, but I can't force you to be gracious.

I can warn you about sins, but I cannot make you moral.

I can love you as a child, but I cannot place you in God's family.

I can pray for you, but I cannot make you walk with God.

I can teach you about Jesus, but I cannot make Jesus your Lord.

I can tell you how to live, but I cannot give you eternal life.

I can love you with unconditional love all of my life

. . . and I will!

OMG, this is beautiful. I love it. A beautiful, loving, picture, beautiful journaling, and a beautiful kit. I love how you have the wording on the ribbon with the feather pen writing it. The corner elements are elegant and the heart is perfect. Great, great layout.

patches....this is an outstanding layout!!!! Your photo extraction is perfect, and the way the kit matches the photo is amazing!!!! I love the way you added the date on the ribbon and again, another one to use the pen as if it was writing....I just lOVE that. If I were you, I'd enter this layout to a magazine or an ezine, it's that good.
