"Behold, the Lord will pass by, and before the Lord, a great and powerful wind will be rending the mountains and shattering the rocks; but the Lord will not be in the wind. After the wind, an earthquake, but the Lord will not be in the earthquake. After the earthquake, there will be a fire, but the Lord will not be in the fire. After the fire, there will be a sound of a gentle breeze, and the Lord will be there."
But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? Bid her therefore that she may help me. And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful; and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her. Luke 10:40-42
So true!! This quote made the rounds on facebook and when I read it I thought of your disclaimer. After all who wants to read about car repairs or medical bills? I finally started admitting to the challenges of mothering a large, young family simply because I was sick of people saying to me "You've got this!" as if it's easy. Just because you see us on Sunday and everyone's clothes are ironed and hair combed doesn't mean the laundry is done, healthy meals are cooked, or bathrooms cleaned. It just means one day a week I can pull it together for a few hours! Ha!
