tough questions for a mother

the tough questions i'm asking of myself today...

when we face the Lord at the end of our lives, he will ask us, "what did you do with those precious eternal human beings that i entrusted into your hands? 
did you sacrifice your own life to give them my life?  did you pass on my purposes?  
did you do the work in your children that will result in praise to my name throughout all of eternity?"
{from: the mission of motherhood by sally clarkson}

precious. sacrifice. purpose. eternity.
