Our Fields

I love the book, Fields of the Fatherless, by C. Thomas Davis. I have so many parts of it underlined. I was re-encouraged by something he said,
"As God directs, we make our "fields" available as resources we can provide from."
What is that field? Everything that God has given to me and our family...our home, food, good health, clean water, and friendship are just a few. As a mother...I need to willingly offer my energy, help, love, kindness, and PATIENCE. What a blessing to "mother" my children; what an amazement to be chosen by God to mother children who had no mother, father, home, or protection. Regardless of the "size" of our field, God has promised us ,and provided us with, everything we need (it's in the Bible somewhere, I'll look it up if you ask - LOL) to live these lives of ours. I have a harvest to share. I pray that God will direct us each as we commit our "fields" to Him.
On a funny note, my "field" was damaged last night when I wasn't of the "darling" babies got a hold of an older brothers' marker...and yes, he colored the carpet with it, and no, I haven't been able to get it out yet.
