Feeding the hungry...

As I woke up today to the cries of my babes yelling "I'm hungreeee!", I am profoundly made aware that as I make grilled cheese for breakfast (don't ask) that I am simply answering Jesus' call to:

  • Feed the hungry
  • To give drink to the thirsty
  • To clothe the naked
  • To harbour the harbourless
  • To ransom the captive

And then as I go about my minute by minute (or more realistically second by second!) work in the taking care of 4 littles that I CAN operate within the spiritual works of mercy: 

  • To instruct the ignorant 
  • To counsel the doubtful
  • To admonish sinners
  • To bear wrongs patiently - I need a lot of grace for this one!!
  • To forgive offense willingly
  • To comfort the afflicted 

What a beautiful and ever so challenging vocation that I have as mommy. Praying for all of you mommy's out there working within the trenches of His mercies and love!
