Encouraging this mom today...

"It may be on a kitchen floor,

Or in a busy shopping store,

Or teaching,

Nursing, day by day,

Till limb and brain almost give way;

Yet if, just there, by Jesus thou art found,

The place thou standest on is Holy Ground." (M. Colley.)

'The incidents of which Jesus' work was made up are, humanly speaking, very humble and unpretentious. Human details fill the compass of His vast experience and work...the most faithful cannot compare to Jesus in lowliness of manner: He taught only one woman at Jacob's well; He noticed a finger touch on the hem of His garment; He stopped to take little children up in His arms and bless them; even so small a thing as a cup of cold water, would yield its recompense of heavenly reward...Take God on thy route and thou shalt banish wrinkles from thy brow. Gethsemane itself shall not age thee if thou tread by the side of Jesus; for it is not the place of thy travel that makes thee weary~it is the heaviness of thy step." (George Matheson)
