for somebody i talked to this morning....

God has given you a job like no other, sweet mother.
To raise children is indeed an honor and a privilege,
a high calling.
And yet it is a hard, tedious, often harrowing job
with sleepless nights,
highs and lows.
gut wrenching decisions.
little reward.
But O, the job is worth more than any other
when you see how God uses your hard labor
to produce the sweet fruit of righteousness
 in the hearts and minds of your children.

God uses your prayers,
your hard work,
your faithfulness to teach His word,
everything you do on their behalf,
 to make your little ones
just what He wants them to be.

And then, in the blink of an eye,
they are grown,
 using all of the skills they learned from you
to raise up another generation of children for His glory.
These will be YOUR grandchildren,
and you will not be able to believe how much you love them.

"To God be the glory great things He has done!!"

I love the humor!
