I Could Have Been Many Things...

I'm sure I could have been many things.  A manager of a successful company.  A compassionate nurse.  An important administrator.  The owner of a restaurant chain.  

The success, power, and prestige that I could have gotten from working outside my home could have been a possibility.  Sure.

But I wouldn't change it for the world to see my little ones grow up.  To be with them, day after day, and witness God's hand in their life. 

Because I am their manager.  I am a compassionate nurse.  I am an important administrator.  And most days, I run a pretty successful restaurant chain... even if I never get the praise for it.  But most importantly, I'm raising little souls to love their creator God.  What a high calling!

Colossians 3:23 say, "Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men."

So to the mommy, whose days seem long, and you wonder if what you are doing means anything... it does!  It makes an eternal difference!  

And, lest I forget the mommies who sometimes deserve twice the credit, those mommies that work outside their home, because they have to, but their heartbeat is first and foremost in the home, God sees your heart and the work you do!

    Traci, Great blog! Got me thinking. A mom is not only a great manager, she is a great partner. While she manages things at home, she "partners" with her hubby so he can have the assurance that his children are in good hands. What a comfort for him to know while he is away from his children his mind can rest at ease that they are in loving hands! Praise the Lord for a loving wife and mom.

  2. Just wanted to say how much I enjoy reading your blogs. You are a good example to me and I am inspired to do better because of you.

  3. I've been struggling badly with not being work/career driven a lot lately. We just talked about this last night actually. I lost my job in December when our church closed and since the church couldn't afford Paul the most he could find was part time at a hospital. We went from 2 part time incomes to one. I have to find work but it isn't happening. Thanks for the reminders. I already knew what you're dating but it helps to be reminded.

  4. MOM - the highest calling we are privileged to be. Thanks for your encouragement to so many. Your children will rise up and call you Blessed for sure. XO
