“Our lives do not culminate in a moment. We should not be hoping for one great photo shoot, because that is not what God is doing with us. Our lives are a story—they are interwoven with the next generation in a way that is impossible for us to understand.
Getting our sense of achievement and satisfaction out of cheerfully performing the tasks that are asked of us can do nothing but good in our lives. Seeing that God is asking something of you—and delighting in doing it for Him—brings the kind of peace with the mundane that can seem unattainable.”
– Rachel Jankovic, Fit to Burst: Abundance, Mayhem, and the Joys of Motherhood
