"Continue On!" - A Moms Against Manic Mondays LINK UP

Happy Monday beautiful ladies!!!


There are so many beautiful things about Mondays . . . Here at From My Mountain View, every Monday, we band together and renounce/reject manic Mondays.  Right here is a perfect place for us to encourage one another and be encouraged!  Moms Against Manic Mondays is a place you can share a post or article on your blog about Mondays, encouragement, joy, pressing on, etc, etc.  :)
  • To share a link to your post just submit your link and title using the widget at the end of this post (it's easy)!
  • Remember to link your blog post back here by adding our adorable button found on the side-bar, courtesy of Plumrose Lane.
  • And then you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments (which is the heart of this community).  :)

Thanks so much to everyone for joining the link-up and for sharing your super encouraging words!  If your blog is one of the featured posts this week, I hope you might feel free to grab my button from the side-bar that reads, "I Was Featured On From My Mountain View," to post to your blog or this week's Moms Against Manic Monday post! :)

Featured Post:
"Continue On!"

This was shared by Sarah over at My Joy-Filled LifeHere is an excerpt of what she shared:

 


"As a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom of 6, there are some days when I just don't want to get out of bed.  I just want to stay under those toasty covers and head back to dreamland.  I don't feel like sweeping up the cheerio-covered kitchen floor 25 times a day; I don't feel like washing 5 heaping loads of laundry every day and still not be caught up; I don't feel like teaching about prepositions, predicates, and conjugating verbs; I don't feel like doing the same old, same old everyday.  Besides, is what I'm doing really making a difference; does it really matter?  Does anyone even notice or see ALL that I do everyday?"
 Sarah continued...
"I am not JUST a mom!  I am an agent for God.  I am His servant.  I am tending to His sheep.  I am polishing arrows for His army.  I am walking in His perfect plan.  I am raising sons and daughters who will be mighty for God."
And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto man;
Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance:
for ye serve the Lord Christ. 
Colossians 3:23-24 
And here is an excerpt from: "Continue On" by Roy Lessin
"You are a wife and mother because that is what I have called you to be.  Much of what you do is hidden from the public eye.  But I notice.  Most of what you give is done without remuneration.  But I am your reward.  Your husband cannot be the man I have called him to be without your support.  Your influence upon him is greater than you think and more powerful than you will ever know.  I bless him through your service and honor him through your love.  Your children are precious to Me.  Even more precious than they are to you.  I have entrusted them to your care to raise for Me.  What you invest in them is an offering to Me.  You may never be in the public spotlight.  But your obedience shines as a bright light before Me.  Continue on.  Remember you are My servant.  Do all to please Me."

    1. Oh thanks, new friend! :) And I'm so very glad you did. I haven't thought about that song in awhile, but my goodness at how its depth sings something new in me every time I hear it. Hope to connect with you more in the future!

      With joy,
