Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men
Colossians 3:23

Faris left for the day
and I was feeling weary.
Crying baby.
Crying two year old.
Never ending cycle of
children to feed
meals to fix
dishes to clean and put away
children to groom
diapers to change
laundry to sort/wash/dry/fold/putaway
soothing one child
then the other
putting away that
picking up this.

I was weary as I stared down my day.
I was feeling sorry for myself.
But I silently repeated that verse in my head.
Over and over
and over
and over.

And then my heart changed
and my weary attitude.

Serving my children this day
I am serving my God.


And then I ordered a pizza for lunch.
