He Sees

I shared in a post earlier this summer about Amy Carmichael's view of education.  I recently re-read that post and thought I would highlight a little portion of that once again.  Always on the search for motivation not only for myself, but for my children, I printed this little poem out in a nice font to display in a prominent area.  I think I will even make it our copy work assignment for today and have some of the children memorize it.  I hope it speaks to you.

Jesus, Savior, dost Thou see
When I'm doing work for Thee?
Common things, not great and grand,
Carrying stones and earth and sand?

I did common work, you know,
Many, many years ago;
And I don't forget.  I see
Everything you do for Me.

And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance;  for you serve the Lord Christ.  
Colossians 3:  23-24
