Playing, Praying, and Hobbies

"Motherhood is not a hobby, it is a calling. You do not collect children because you find them cuter than stamps. It is not something to do if you can squeeze the time in. It is what God gave you time for.Christian mothers carry their children in hostile territory. When you are in public with them, you are standing with, and defending, the objects of cultural dislike. You are publicly testifying that you value what God values, and that you refuse to value what the world values. You stand with the defenseless and in front of the needy. You represent everything that our culture hates, because you represent laying down your life for another—and laying down your life for another represents the gospel." Rachel Jankovic 

"It may be as religious of an act for a mother to romp with her children at one time as it is to pray with them the next..." Elizabeth Prentiss.(Stepping Heavenward)
