I have been spending a lot of my breastfeeding hours catching up on blogs that I like. As in years worth of content because I don’t really follow any of them closely. But I love NieNieDialogues and she shared this quote by Neil A Marriott, and it rang true with me and my eyes burst into tears when I read just the first line (mostly because I’m just so tired, and will only become more tired in the coming days).
“My days were full of forgettable things like folding laundry,
reading children’s books, and putting casseroles together for dinner.
Sometimes in the harbor of our homes, we can’t see that by the simple,
consistent acts—including family prayer, scripture study,
and family home evening—great things are brought to pass.
But I testify that these very acts carry eternal significance.
Great joy comes when those little boats—our children—grow
into mighty seafaring vessels filled with gospel light and ready to
“embark in the service of God.” Our small acts of faith
and service are how most of us can continue in
God and eventually bring eternal light and glory to our family,
our friends, and our associates.
You truly carry a circle of influence with you!”
Neil A Marriott
Thanks Neil! Another favorite scripture that comes to mind is D&C 64:33 “Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great.”
