Before I was done dreaming this morning and certainly before I had my first glimpse of a steaming cup of coffee, I had to change a very nasty diaper.
Thankfully I had an email from Jack waiting on me (he was out of the house before said coffee as he was away on business) and the encouragement sank so deep and was so powerful, I thought I'd share it with those of you who are in the midst of the mess and the glory of raising children. The email read as follows:
This verse struck me for you with the house and the kids. Our strong oxen, who are often unruly and often mess up our stable, will produce a large harvest.Love you.Proverbs 14:4 NLT"Without oxen a stable stays clean, but you need a strong ox for a large harvest."
I may not have a clean stable, but I've got my eyes on the prize... that large harvest.
Amen and amen.
Nasty diapers pale in the light of that kind of reward.
Onward, my beloved oxen!
