When the Days are Long and the Nights are Longer

    Oh how I love this so much… I remember those ’empty wasted days’ caring for my sick little children and feeling frozen in the endless days and nights of a ‘wasteland’…
    This is beautiful. I wish I had read this when I was desperately searching for significance in those draining and stressful moments.

    Good for YOU for having such a Godly perspective when you are tired and overwhelmed at it all… God bless your faithfulness!!!

  2. What a lovely and beautiful reminder. It’s so hard for us to see that significance when we’re doing “seemingly” lowly things. However we have a God who loves us and brings about glory even in the lowliest of tasks.
    Thanks so much for this reminder (and for linking up to the #SHINEbloghop).

    Wishing you a lovely day.

    So very beautiful. I sometimes put too much significance in the beholders of this world and forget to see who I am in the eyes of my ultimate beholder, Christ. May I remember that all that I do is for His glory. 🙂

  4. What a wonderful post! I almost wish I’d read it last week when Baby Boy was struggling with a cold/head cold, being clingy and whiny, and not wanting to be away from me for even a few minutes. Those days and nights were long, especially with the worrying about the sounds of his breathing with a stopped nose….
    Nonetheless, it was good to read today. A great way to be reminded that the struggle and the frustration and the wanting to be left alone (for any length of time), while also still trying to tend to the house were worth it. That it was all very important (and not just for Baby Boy’s health) and meaningful and purpose-filled. Thank you! 🙂

    I can’t agree more!! I know this but it is always so good to be reminded!! I have had a long week with all of my kids being sick, thankfully not with the stomach bug, we have been there and you have my deepest sympathy, we had to throw out our rug:( It’s so hard and exhausting when all you are doing is tending to the needs of everyone one else and you don’t have a minute to yourself. But you are right God has called us right where we are and it is all for his glory!!! He is so faithful to fill us when we are empty!

  6. I really loved this perspective. It makes the long days of feeling like I’m doing nothing, seem so much more important.
