being a stay at home mom is hard.
there i said it.
i'm just laying it all out there.
yes, i love spending all day with my baby boy and i wouldn't change it for the world, but that doesn't mean it's not difficult.
sometimes i feel completely undervalued because today we live in a world where it's all about "The American Dream". it's all about climbing the ladder, buying bigger houses, nicer cars, and making more money. it's all about ourselves.
yes, i could be using my college degree and working full time instead of doing the occasional "fill in" job. yes, we could be making lots more money. and yes, at times this is appealing, but at what cost?
is it really going to matter in a hundred years what car i drove or how much money i made?
that house will be torn down someday and that car will make some nice scrap metal.
that money-we can't take it with us.
i'm so thankful for a husband who always brings me back to thinking eternally when i lose sight of the importance of my new role as momma.
there is a soul at stake here.
my son's soul.
nothing is more important than doing my very best to bring him closer to Christ.
so i will spend my days with my son growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ and longing for the day of his salvation.
and i guess i'll wash a dish or two along the way ;)
"As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.
The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field;
the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.
But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children—
with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts." - Ps. 103:13-18
"So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." - 2 Cor. 4:18
