A Friday Link (The Mommy Sermon)

The mopping the floors, the ins and outs, the making of the meals, the attitude I have in stressful situations, and if I'm more indulged in a news feed rather than His word.

It's my sermon.

It's the way I listen, the way I don't listen, the way I speak, the way I spend my time, and the way I love others.

It's all my mommy sermon to the kids.

Just wanted to share some words of wisdom that I came across over here. I've been trying to constantly remind myself lately that my daily routine is my sermon to my little loves. Love these words of wisdom...

"Children are mirrors. They do what we do. They don't listen to lectures or sermons. They watch our sermons, which we preach - often without saying a word - in places like kitchens and cars. And even though I had told her a hundred times to never scribble in her books, she had seen me "draw" in my bible over and over again."

The whole post is great, but that specific paragraph is going to stick with me for awhile. They truly are like little mirrors, and are the best accountability I've ever known. So I'm going to keep working on my sermon :).

I needed that reminder this week.

Anyway, just wanted to pass it along. Hope you all have a great weekend!
