Motherhood is a Calling

My friend Kaylee shared this link on her blog and it edified me so much, I want to share it with all of you.   Motherhood Is a Calling (And Where Your Children Rank) - Desiring God

Here is an excerpt that I particularly liked:   (I do recommend reading the whole article.)

"Motherhood is not a hobby, it is a calling. You do not collect children because you find them cuter than stamps. It is not something to do if you can squeeze the time in. It is what God gave you time for.

Christian mothers carry their children in hostile territory. When you are in public with them, you are standing with, and defending, the objects of cultural dislike. You are publicly testifying that you value what God values, and that you refuse to value what the world values. You stand with the defenseless and in front of the needy. You represent everything that our culture hates, because you represent laying down your life for another—and laying down your life for another represents the gospel."

My hands are full of a good thing!
