What is a mopped floor
if little feet don’t run over it, taken with laughter?
What is a clean window
if my eyes don’t stop to thank Him for the flowers on the other side?
What is pressed laundry
if insecure fears stain the soul?
What is a manicured yard
if I don’t lay in the grass with my kids to discover the clouds?
What is a schedule kept
if I push people to get there?
What is a made bed
if my heart can’t find true rest?
What is a neat playroom
if kids haven’t deepened friendships while scattering Legos?
What is a quiet night
if discord filled the walls by day?
Behold, how good and pleasant it is
when brothers dwell in unity!
What is a gourmet meal
if I feast on bitter thoughts?
What is a fit body
if I don’t know inner beauty?
What is life
if we miss the point of it all?
Fill me, Lord…
When life gets wild, how do you keep perspective as a mom?
