~ Asleep on the Job ~

My 3 yr. old is chief washcloth and small towel folder. He has since been promoted to clothing as you can see by the small pile behind him. Apparently, that blanket he was in the middle of folding looked just far too soft and comfortable to resist.

Do you sometimes as a mother feel "asleep" on the job?

Sure we're there with our children all day, but are we at times guilty of just going through the motions? Easily distracted, absorbed in our thoughts, tapped out, emotionally and physically drained.
Motherhood is taxing, it takes so much energy to be intentional and focused on these blessings of ours.

We need nourishment for our souls, food for our minds and a love so great it reaches into our weary hearts and fills us to overflowing.

Our Heavenly Father is more than ready to fill in the gap.

"For without me you can do nothing." ~John. 15:5b

Below are the verses I memorized this week and I thought I would share as they blessed me immensely.

One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple. When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek. Psalm 27:4, 8

I'm thinking that all these late summer evenings are getting to this little guy... I think I'll let him snooze awhile.

what a lovely post - thank you for sharing your heart. I must admit I too am guilty of sometimes just going through the motions of motherhood. A good reminder here to take time to be still and be refueled.

Oh and those pictures of your son - absolutely precious!
