my uninterrupted nap

May 09, 2010  •  Leave a Comment

today is mother’s day.  i loved this day partly because i got an uninterrupted nap (thanks to a loving husband).  obviously, i LOVE being a mom.  it is a God-given gift and responsibility - not to be taken lightly.  our children will be dependent on us, live under our roof, watch our every response,  listen to our words & follow our lead for about 18 years.  today after my nap... i thought...God told the Israelites countless times in the Old Testament to: not keep God’s Words and acts to themselves “do not  forget the things you have seen...TEACH them to your children”,  “do not forget, TELL them about the LORD”,  “IMPRESS them on your children”,  “TALK about them when you sit at home and when you walk”, “WRITE them on the door  frames of your home”  -- DO NOT FORGET THE LORD, lest a generation raise up that does not KNOW HIM.

I want our children to KNOW GOD.  today i celebrate motherhood and I’m challenged by God’s purpose for me as mom.  i think i need to take naps more often!
