"Oh, mothers of young children, I bow before you in reverence. Your work is most holy. You are fashioning the destinies of immortal souls. The powers folded up in the little ones that you hushed to sleep in your bosoms last night, are powers that shall exist forever. You are preparing them for their immortal destiny and influence. Be faithful. Take up your sacred burden reverently. Be sure that your heart is pure and that your life is sweet and clean." —J.R. Miller, The Family, pg. 106
If you have never read this book, I encourage you to do so. Vision Forum formerly sold it as Homemaking, but now is called The Family. It was written in the 1800's but i am so amazed how much it applies to us today. You will be encouraged in your daily walk through this life! I wish i could post so many more of the paragraphs that made me sigh, smile, cry, and laugh. It really is that good and worth the read!
