Do you ever feel invisible?
As my first year of homeschool co-op wraps up tonight with our Spring Program, my boys will climb on the stage tonight with their classes, and I am sure to melt in tears in my seat as they sing their songs.
My mom, who cried at my school music productions and end of year programs, shared this video with me. In honor of all the moms either wrapping up their school years, plugging on through the summer, or anticipating their kids being home all summer, this video is for you. In honor of the moms of grown kids wondering if what they did meant anything, this video is for you. It is for the mom who sometimes feels invisible.
It is for anyone doing meaningful work. Anyone raising children, serving in their church, serving in their community, doing their jobs well- Anyone who feels invisible.
Builders of Notre-Dame and Other Great Cathedrals
I didn’t realize until watching this video that the builders of most great cathedrals are unknown. Their magnificent work of art lives on after them, even through fire, yet no one will remember their names.
You are building a work of art in your service. If you do it well, if you do it right, your work will live on long after you as a monument to God.
And God sees.
