Words of Wisdom For Mothers
We mothers must take care of the possible
and trust God for the impossible. We are to love,
affirm, encourage, teach, and care for the
physical needs of the family.
We cannot convict of sin, create hunger
and thirst after God, or convert. These are
miracles, and miracles are not
in our department.
I have, as a wife and mother, a good cause-
the best cause in the world-but I lack the
shoulders to support it. The job isn't
too big for me. I'm not big enough for the job.
As a mother, I must faithfully, patiently,
lovingly, and happily do my part-
then quietly wait for God to do His.
