Never Alone

Do you ever feel lonely? Sometimes I get caught up in the monotony of life, the seemingly endless tasks of motherhood, the hours at home with no adult conversation. Yes, I get caught up in it and convince myself I'm lonely.

But... I will yet praise Him.

How can I be lonely when there is a little friend on my hip while I clean the toilet and peeking over my shoulder while I scrub the tub?

How can I be lonely when, every time I sit down to nurse, another little one joins me with a story book?

How can I be lonely when during naptime a Lego® enthusiast whispers all his building plans to me? (Well, he must be reminded to whisper, but he's never prompted to talk!)

How can I be lonely when my helper-girl follows me around the kitchen asking what she can do? Or when that same girl wraps her arms around my neck during a thunderstorm?

How can I be lonely when I have a faithful companion with whom I spend most every evening? Side by side, we wash the dishes and do the bills and get the children to bed.

And most of all, how can I be lonely while in daily fellowship with my Savior?

I have no need to be lonely. I am greatly blessed!



  1. How true! Sometimes I struggle with wanting somebody who can say more than gibberish, and then I remember the years that we thought we'd never have any children. How can I be lonely when I have so many blessings keeping me company?

  2. I know what you mean, Kristin. And I like how you put it: "I convince myself I'm lonely". Because we truly aren't. God blesses us with more than we could ever think to ask or imagine, but we still talk ourselves into thinking we need more. Thankfully, He's patient with us when we just don't "see" it.

  3. A great reminder Kristin. And you are absolutely right!!!

    Many blessings to you dear sister in Christ-

  4. This is so true. We do "convince" ourselves that we need more. How could I possibly be lonely when I have little ones who constantly want to be near me? I've never had a friend who wanted to be with me so much. Even when they are finally asleep, Tim is at work, and the house is quiet, I still have a Savior who wants an intimate relationship with me. I definitely don't have any time to be lonely.
