the awesome task

It’s always hard to blog a post when it’s been some time since the previous.  It’s sort of like exercising.  There are a million and one excuses for not doing so or for avoiding the task, but once begun, it’s always a refreshing thing.  And, like exercise with many breaks between, blogging is awkward and probably painful to the reader of the flabby blogger.

I marveled at this Spurgeon quote:

quotebegin.gifWe have come to a turning point in the road.
If we turn to the right mayhap our children
and our children’s children will go that way; but if we turn to the left,
generations yet unborn will curse our names
for having been unfaithful to God and to His Word.”

Charles Spurgeon

Well, that puts a whole new spin on tomorrow’s plans.  Have you ever thought that the decisions you are making today will affect the children’s children? Or, do you consider what you’re doing day by day in light of eternity?  It’s sort of silly, then, to fret over this covering or that plastic storage thing or what they were wearing at the Oscar’s, isn’t it.  For in our hand we hold the clay of the future.  We’re molding and shaping the vessels of tomorrows work for the LORD.  What a marvelous task we have been entrusted to carry on.  What an awesome thing it is to be a mother.  For if we do not teach them… another will.  They will be taught.  What will they be taught and what will the effect be on their children?

Amazing love, how can it be that thou my God shouldst die for me.

  1. What a wonderful quote. I am seriously considering putting this on our blessings birth announcement in April. It is one of those quotes that says so much in so few words.

    In Christian love,
