An Answer to Pedestals
I'll give you the quote first and then I will explain.
So do we just let everyone down? No, we ask them to let us down. Right off that man-made pedestal of toothpicks. Our role in the lives of those God sends our way for help is not unlike John the Baptist's. We become a voice in their desert helping them prepare a way for the Lord."
I think because I am a mom of six and I homeschool, sometimes people do put me on a pedestal. Even though I try to be blatantly honest about my failings, I still get people thinking I'm some kind of a "super-mom".
Well, I'm not! Just look at my blog. I'm not the best writer, the best photographer, the best gardener, the best mother, the best teacher, nor the best wife. I'm human. I'm not pretending to be anything else.
