quote for today

These children are dear to Me.
  Be a mother to them, and more than a mother.
  Watch over them tenderly, be just and kind.
  If thy heart is not large enough to embrace them, 
I will enlarge it after a pattern of My own.
If these young children are docile and obedient, 
bless Me for it; 
if they are forward, 
call upon Me for help; 
if they weary thee, 
I will be thy consolation; 

if thou sink under thy burden, 
I will be thy reward.

(Elliot, Amy Charmichael, p204)
