The Sacred

One definition of the word sacred is “dedicated to a diety or to some religious purpose” (dictionary.com)

I forget that what sometimes feels monotonous and tedious, is still sacred to Him. My daily work here around the house, teaching and mothering these children, it’s all sacred because I am serving Him. Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. Colossians 3:23, 24

This song, Sacred, by Caedmons Call, reminded me of that this weekend. It was a reminder I was in great need of.

this house is a good mess
it’s the proof of life
no way would I trade jobs
but it don’t pay overtime
I’ll get to the laundry
I don’t know when
I’m saying a prayer tonight
cause tomorrow it starts again
could it be that everything is sacred?
and all this time
everything I’ve dreamed of
has been right before my eyes
the children are sleeping
but they’re running through my mind
the sun makes them happy
and the music makes them unwind
my cup runneth over
and I worry about the stain
teach me to run to You
like they run to me for every little thing
when I forget to drink from you
I can feel the banks harden
Lord, make me like a stream
to feed the garden
wake up, little sleeper
the Lord, God Almighty
made your Mama keeper
so rise and shine,rise and shine
rise and shine cause
everything is sacred
and all this time
everything I’ve dreamed of
has been right before my eyes

Continuing to count on towards my 1000 Gifts…

300. The meal after the fast

301. Weekends!!

302. The spaces you promise to fill, when all feels empty

303. The time in between…

304. pink paper cards etched with love and hearts for me, mommy.

305. The love of a husband for his wife, my husband, for me- a gift most abundant!
