Neverendings

Neverending:
laundry
breakfast, lunch, dinner
kitchen clean-up
bills
worries
prayers
confessions
tiredness

Neverending:
companions
connections
lessons
communication
care
prayers

"The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: 
"I have loved you with an everlasting (neverending) love;
I have drawn you with loving-kindness."

~Jeremiah 31:3

This is exactly what I needed to be reminded of this morning as I tackle the summer/winter clothes switch over. Thanks.

Oh, yes. What a familar list.

Kristen said...

the first list of neverendings are so hard...especially when we just want completion, to cross something off of our list! but the second list makes the first bearable. thanks for sharing :)

Oh....I really like this. It's poetic, and realistic.

And you take us right to the truth of our Lord's everlasting love.

Andrea,
Beautifully put. Great reminder. I am so impatient with the constant kitchen duties...but they represent all the *people* and *love* God has given our family. God, forgive me! Andrea, thank you for the beautiful reminder of the "neverendings"! And yes, uncertainty is very hard for me! I am so thankful that our new babies are here...the uncertainty of the end of pregnancy weighs on me.
