Lo, Children are a heritage of the Lord!
Yes, I am talking about shadows! Not just that patch of shade that causes a little bit of giggles, when ever you see it. But I am also talking about the shadows we are not conscious about. I have five little shadows, that follow me, and it causes me to stop and think, I know that all that I do, is watched, and every decision I make, is considered by my siblings. I have three little sisters, who are growing up in my shade, and have I been a good example? Have I kept my cool, and shown them what a christian woman should be? I knew that staying at home, was not just for my benefit, but for theirs as well. I knew that they would follow my lead, and see that, " See, sissy Laura is staying at home, and is able to get on with her life. I want to do that too." I don't think I could be cross with them now. I am not promising that I won't but it gives me a sobering thought to think about.
So, I know now, that no matter how many people think it is not logical for me to stay home, I think of my little sisters, who admire, and love me, and who knows how much longer I will have them as little sisters, and pupils. God please forgive me for my blindness and selfishness!
In Christ Alone!
