The Lens of Eternity

Some of you sisters may feel inadequate because you can’t seem to do all you want to do. Motherhood and parenting are most challenging roles. . . In general you noble sisters are doing a much better job of holding it all together and making it work than you realize. May I suggest that you take your challenges one day at a time. Do the best you can. Look at everything through the lens of eternity. If you will do this, life will take on a different perspective.
I fear you sisters do not realize in the smallest part the extent of your influence for good in your families, in the Church, and in society. Your influence for good is incalculable and indescribable.

God Bless You! We rarely take actions based on long-term (generational) considerations. Our lives would be so much better if we did so...

I invite your blog readers to check out the spoken word of Faylita Hicks as my entry in this week's Sunday Inspiration meme.

peace, Villager
