ME AND MY MAMA-- A FINE EXAMPLE OF THIS!!!! I WANT TO BE JUST LIKE HER!!
* FOUNTAIN OF JOY*
she was a willing worker
as GOD'S beautiful women, we are to be that fountain of joy, and the heart of our home. in PROVERBS 31, it is all about being a fountain of joy, life, love,and nourishment for others. the beautiful woman willingly works with her hands.well, this could be a lot of things.. but here it is weaving.. taking something, materials,and coming up with a finished product. this is something that i want to do.. i want to learn to sew and make things. it is so special to have things you have had, someone made for you. think of the time, and patience, and talent that was put into that. that itself, is what makes it dear to you.
she was a worker of beauty
this one convicts me so much. it is being a worker at home. she does not put off her housework. she does it with a grateful heart. i will be the first to tell you, i hate to clean..i hate to dust, vacumm, and i hate to do the bathrooms..ugh..but, i do it.. i need to have a more happy heart in doing so.. i need to set things aside, and do more, and develop a schedule to follow each day and week.
TO HAVE A BETTER HEART OF JOY IN DOING THIS I NEED TO:
pray daily-pray for my attitude in doing this work, give me strength.
recite scripture- read verses that encourage me in doing these tasks
do the work for the LORD - not only are you doing it for your home, and husband and kids, but most importantly for the LORD. COLOSSIANS 3 :23 '' AND WHATSOEVER YE DO, DO IT HEARTILY,AS UNTO THE LORD,AND NOT UNTO MEN:
then do the tasks- with a joyful heart, and a happy heart. think of that smile on hubby's face, when he sees you have been hard at work, or when you go to bed, on those fresh , clean, sheets.. that makes your night.you rest better too..lol
remember you will reap the benefits, and you can value each day as a gift from GOD. we are not promised tommorrow.we can bring the best gift to our home as beautiful women, and that is a heart filled with JOY!!!!
