Momma, I see you.

We are almost 1 year into the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States.
That means…
– 1 year of living the quarantine life
– 1 year of your children home from school with decreased extra-curricular activities
– 1 year of mask wearing, washing, repeat, repeat, repeat
– 1 year of virtual church, small group, or bible study
– 1 year of making dinner AGAIN because you can’t go out to eat
– 1 year of reduced opportunity for your own social life
– etc. etc. etc.

Momma, I see you.
Momma, I’m right there with you. I’m tired. I need more opportunities for self care. I need deeper social connection.

Honestly, I’m surprised by how “normal” COVID-19 life has become. However, I find myself watching a TV show and asking, “Where are their masks?”

Momma, I see you.
But far more important than me seeing you, GOD sees you.

Hebrews 6:10
“God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.”

Momma, your labor is not lost. God sees your work. God sees your sacrifice. God sees all the zoom calls, the “I’m bored” complaints and the sibling bickering. God sees you. You are not forgotten. You are not alone.

Maybe you need to hear this today. I know I needed a little reminding. God will not forget the work we do as we love his people and help them. May you find hope in that today. I know I do.
