in the constant loading and unloading of the dishwasher, the ever-growing laundry monster in the basement, the never-ending diapers & the long nights and early mornings, one can find their day washed away by seemingly menial tasks. don't get me wrong, i have loved the privilege of staying home with my kids but at times i can lose the revelation of what i am doing. i found the quote below earlier today and it just set my perspective straight after a long day.
"i learned more about christianity from my mother than from all the theologians in england"
- john wesley
what an terrifyingly awesome statement. it's not at all about the dishes, the mangled toys or dinner clean-up... it's about your who not your do... who you are changes everything you do.
what a worthy cause to wade through the dirty laundry and unswept cheerios for.
