The new theme is up at Salt Faith Challenge.
Hazel has touched on a very relevant topic….perseverance.
The verse I have on the inside of my card for this week is one that I had posted in my kitchen for a long time.
I think as moms, we can sometimes get a little tired of the everyday, tedious, thankless jobs that we do for our families (anyone with me on that?).
I mean, really, is my life supposed to be vacuuming and laundry and making lunches and REdusting that tv that I *just* did 2 days ago? But when I start complaining to myself and shake my head and refocus, I know that serving my family, even in these little ways…keeping the flow going, the mess relatively under control (at least I am working on it!)…that’s something that we can do to show Christ’s love to those around us. And when we can PERSEVERE and do these little things without complaining, and “not get tired of doing what is good”, we WILL reap a harvest of blessing in God’s timing.
So even though you might not be persevering through a really hard trial or situation, we are still called to persevere through the grind of life for the benefit of those around us…and that could just be the light someone might need to see.
My card uses Unity Stamp Company’s “Princess Flowerette” and “Distressed Dots background”.
I based my card on this cake…..(Red Filagree Cake) for Unity’s Birthday Challenge #3.
