Thank you for your service!

Oh mama of many – I remember only too well how intense those days of Littles Galore were.  I remember FALLING into bed after a day of chasing and correcting and addressing and helping and feeding and washing and reading to and training and loving…and….and….and….

Just in case no one else has told you recently – you’re doing one of the HARDEST jobs in the world.  T.H.E. H.A.R.D.E.S.T…. and someone should thank you for your service!

You – for crying out loud – are training up people!  You’re not just training children, you’re training up little people. Yes, they may have immaturities, yes, they may exhibit some sinful behavior, but they are still little people – little people who have the potential of being used by God the Father for outstanding things in their life time.  You, dear Sister, are training up those little people for the sake of the Kingdom… and someone should thank you for your service!

You, by the very way you speak to your Littles, by the way you teach them to honor one another, by the way you impart to them a love of the Word and teach them to delight in it, by the way you love them and serve them – you are teaching them.  You are preparing them to serve their God and King…you are preparing them…to change the world!

So, dear Sister of mine….thank you….for your service to our Lord!
