Open mouth, insert foot was supposed to be something I outgrew when I became a mom. Yet instead, the opposite has been true. That was never more apparent to me than the first time I said something to my kids and I realized that is exactly what God had been trying to tell me. "I know where I am going," were the words that left my mouth, and in the midst of my chaotic and confused life, I realized I was not just speaking to my kids but myself. That one moment opened my eyes, and suddenly I was paying full attention. But it was not the last time God would use my own words to teach me a lesson. Far from it.
