Yes parenting is a long race, and often more of a jog walk. I know I've found myself limping at times but perseverance is key. I love that verse.
Don't worry...your kids are greatly blessed, and even if they don't know it now, they will someday. Just keep persevering and leaning into Him for strength (and maybe a little patience). ;)
Parenting is the same as teaching, sometimes it is not until the end of the year that you can see the growth, for in the day to day it seems like all of our effort is not doing anything! Joining hands as we persevere together! I homeschooled my children for a spell as well. Press on! :)
Thanks for taking the time to comment. I always enjoy hearing from you. ~Kim
