Me, Invisible?

A word of encouragement for any 'Cathedral builders' out there - especially mothers. Remember this when you feel somewhat 'invisible' or insignificant:

Whatever Cathedral you happen to be building in this season of your life, "let's pray that our work will stand as a monument" to our great God.

Be encouraged, friends, because nothing is invisible.

Amen & amen.

You know what, Susannah, I am neither a woman nor invisible, but I needed to see that.

It was very encouraging.

Great job on this blog Susannah

Thanks Susannah. I sat today and watched my oldest daughter as she visited the college of her dreams. She attended classes, talked with future professors and enjoyed the social life. She flittered back and forth while I observed from the sidelines with my 6 year old. I did feel invisible as i realized that I've poured my life into her for 17 years and soon she'll be leaving. So I needed to see that, and I pray that the cathedral I've been building will stand up under the pressures of a very new life!

Joe~ I received it through email about a year ago. Something reminded me of it yesterday & I knew that I needed to see it again. Apparently, it was timely for us both. Praise God!

Steve~ Thanks for coming by & commenting. I'm grateful for your kind words (& the follow). Please come back!

Laurie~ Wow. College...then this REALLY was timely for you, wasn't it? I'm so grateful that God sees every little thing; that He's working it all for our good, & our children are safe in His hands. Sometimes I have to remember that He loves them even more than I do...Thanks for the visit, sweet girl!

Cool blog Girl, keep it going..

I blogged this a while back because it was so inspiring, too, Susannah..I'm SO glad you did today because more and more should see this.
I do wish she touched on faith a tad more, but I think this pulls people in a bit easier..... with a little less resistance.
She's marvelous..and lives close to me; I hope I run into her some day so I can tell her!

This Trek from poor little ole self-centered me, me, me, to Glory to God, and "thy will be done" is poignant, especially as she reads: "builder unknown, builder unknown".

1Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that we all possess knowledge.[a] Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. 2The man who thinks he knows something does not yet know as he ought to know. 3But the man who loves God is known by God.

MMI~ Thanks! Glad you came by!

Z~ Isn't it terrific? You're so lucky to live out there w/ all those famous people! (All we have here is Krispy Kreme doughnuts & Andy Griffith down the road a piece!) :) Seriously, if you do ever see this gal, tell her "thank you!" from the lot of us...

Dan~ Yep. If there's one thing that parenting has taught me (more than anything else) is that it ain't about me -- hardly at all...

Great blog Suz, I think that you should write more often, you seem to be really good at it.
Please keep this blog going and keep it current.

Susannah said...

Professor~ Thank you for your kind words. I really appreciate it. (Interesing what you said; I'm finishing a short story this afternoon for a friend to peruse...) Thanks again; I'm grateful for your feedback. And thanks for the follow!

Great stuff!

I think I'm going to thank my wife for all she does again! And then again! ;)


God bless America!
