I have had some pretty busy days since our return from the Philippines and haven't had time to download the pictures off my camera yet. We had a very special time with the staff. We were thankful to be there and witness the wonderful testimony of Jesus love in action as the team helped in relief efforts to those affected by the typhoon/mudslides in and around Baguio. I hope to share some pictures soon.
On another thought ... I came across this quote and felt it very worthy of sharing.
Here's a great quote from the book Womanly Dominion by Mark Chanski.
"I know that some jobs don't really count, don't make much of a difference, don't actually matter that much, don't have much lasting significance. Not so with mothering. I know that in some jobs the worker is only handling cleaning equipment, or car parts, or computer keyboards, or insurance policies, or court cases, or political legislation, or stockholders' funds. Not so with mothering. A mother is handling things of a far greater magnitude. She's handling never-dying souls. She's daily conducting heart surgery on eternal spirits whose forever destinies are influenced most profoundly by the hands that rock their cradles, wipe their noses, spank their fannies, open their Bibles, prepare their after-school snacks, and turn off their bedroom lights. Those motherly hands are molding characters which will become men and women who will turn the world upside down either for good or for evil. Now that's a job that counts. " (Womanly Dominion, page 108-109)
Being a mom is such an awesome privelege. Enjoy the days and treasure the moments as you nurture those little hearts in God's principles.
