I laughed as I sat in church and watched the familiar video clip play. A man had set up interviews for the position of ‘Director of Operations’. The clip was a compilation of all the applicant’s reaction to how demanding the job would be. Long hours including public holidays, no breaks, the occasional all nighter and all without pay! Then he confessed to the applicants that there were many fulfilling the post globally; the job of mum!
Mothering is the highest calling in the world because we all came from one. She produces Presidents who run countries, doctors who treat the sick and farmers who feed the world. She feeds confidence, gives support and is the number one fan of her offspring. Sometimes she is blessed enough to partner with a significant other who helps create this product.
The bible says ‘Her children rise up and call her blessed; . . .’ (Proverbs 31:28), not because she is perfect but because she gives her best!
Keep doing what you’re doing and remember to cut yourself some slack, you are blessed and highly favoured!
Her clothes are well-made and elegant, and she always faces tomorrow with a smile. When she speaks she has something worthwhile to say, and she always says it kindly. She keeps an eye on her household, and keeps them all busy and productive. Her children respect and bless her; her husband joins in with words of praise . . . Proverbs 31:25-28The Message Bible
