Some times days just run together so that weeks become months before you even realize it.

Birthdays come and go.

Songs are sung.

School activities get attended.

Church services are sat through.

Laundry is washed.

Dishes are cleaned.

Floors are vacuumed.

And yet, I get up and look around and think:

“What in the world have I accomplished?”

.

Only one life will soon be past, only what’s done for Christ will last.

.

Some times this truth is a conviction. What AM I doing for Christ?

And other times it is such a comfort…. I am {attempting to!} teaching my children to love and obey God and become responsible people, so that possibly they can effect a difference in the lives they come across–even while still children.

And that will last.

Some days, I freely admit, discipline and instruction are born out of frustration and not exactly done lovingly. Those days drive me to my knees so that other days become more peaceful, though not less hectic. {Sadly, many times it takes those frustrating days to remind me that I cannot do this wife and mother thing on my own!}

Remember, dear lady, no matter if you are a mother staying home to care for your children or a woman who must go out into the world to earn a wage, if you are doing what you do for Christ, your labor will not be in vain when the time comes to face the Lord.
