And The Walls Came Tumbling Down

Do you ever feel like the day’s activities are stacking up so high they become walls around you? It reminded me of the children’s song about Joshua:

“Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho. Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, and the walls came tumbling down.”

Some days I feel like I’m fighting a battle with everyday life:  Household chores, paying the bills, running errands, and, “Honey, I need my volleyball shorts…” “Mom, I’m hungry…” (“What? Again? You just got done eating!”) And I wonder, “Is this stuff ever going to end?”

But then I hear, “Thanks for taking care of us, honey,” and “Mom, I love you,” and those walls that hide the benefits of what I do come tumbling down and everything comes into perspective.

Another reminder, a kiss from the Lord to “…not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” (Galations 6:9)
