Proverbs 31 woman... me? Not!
This is my definition of “Homekeeping” ……… manages the home and children; oversees the shopping and food preparation; chauffeuring when needed (when is it not needed!); stays available for her husband and his needs; imparts Christian faith to the kids by teaching, encouraging, role modeling. See Proverbs 31.
My favorite place to practice the profession of homekeeping is ….. #1: the kitchen - showing love throught the food I make; #2: our schoolroom - showing love to our kids by home educating them; #.3: couponing to save money.
I do find joy in keeping my home and I think the reason is ….. because I want the best for my family.
At this point in my life, this is what I believe my children, husband and/or other family members think about our home…. that it looks fine and doesn't need to be cleaned every week. I am far from weekly cleaning, but the kids and I are working toward that end. My husband never complains about the housekeeping, bless him! I think others see the love in our home not the mess.
The things I wish someone had told me about homekeeping when I was young.… that it doesn't just happen all by itself. It does take work and planning, especially if you home educate.
The messages that I received about homemaking and being a wife/mother when growing up were ….. that it is a blessing to be able to stay home with your kids and manage your home well. Thanks, Mom!
6 blessings that God has given me this week are …. my faith in Christ, a loving husband (even though he is sick), caring friends, wonderful kids, the ability to stay-at-home with my kids, home schooling.....
