New Job Title?

Wow. I really love this statement:

"Get Perspective:~Hold a sleeping babe in your arms, mouth agape and warm breath drifting, and stand before a map of this world. Which would you rather have? Paris, New York, Tokyo, London------or this flesh lying against yours, this one made in the image and likeness of the very Divine? This world is going to burn up, cinders for the universe….but your child is a soul without end, forever and ever existence. The world has pitifully, laughably little to offer in comparison to this holy opportunity to raise up a child." (Holy Experience)

Well, then. I have to change my job title. Not Stay at Home Mom, but what? Soul Tender, Life Giver, Teacher, Discipler, Missionary, Keeper of Hearts. Talk about some inspiration for not growing weary in doing good, talk about a redefinition of job description. How can I view myself as unemployed or merely a stay at home mom after reading that article? I can love my children passionately, cultivate them carefully, teach them diligently. My job has eternal significance. Go hug your kids, I'm going to hug mine.
