So many time we forget, as mothers and grandmothers, the value of our tireless tasks. The world seems to diminish the role we play and the job that the Lord has given us when he entrusts to us the tiny babe and growing child. The home, with all of its endless work and repetitive chores, rests within our hands. I was reading recently when I came upon this beautiful quote that has stayed with me, in my heart and mind. I hope you will be inspired by these wise words….
“Oh that God would give every mother a vision of the glory and splendor of the work that is given to her when a babe is place in her bosom to be nursed and trained! Could she have but one glimpse in to the future of that life as it reaches on into eternity; could she look into it’s soul to see its possibilities; could she be made to understand her own personal responsibility for the training of this child, for the development of its life, and for its destiny,–she would see that in all God’s world there is no other work so noble and so worthy of her best powers, and she would commit to no others hands the sacred and holy trust given to her.” -JR Miller
