''She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. Proverbs 31:15
this chapter convicts me very much. i am not a early riser, unless i have to be. it is very hard for me to get up for work, but i do it... but it has helped me in a few ways.she looks forward to getting up, and providing for her family. back when proverbs 31 was written,the woman got up early, to help her family. she tended to the fire at home.it was an excellent time to get up and prepare the meals for the day.
she also tended to the fires of her heart. she spent time in GOD'S WORD. she prepared her heart, and did her daily devotions. it was a time to sort out prayer requests, pray for them, her special time with the LORD.
she tended the fires of their hearts.she teaches this to her own family. she knows they need to learn and hear the truth. she wants to raise them right.
she also provides delicious meals to the family.her family depends on her for this.she enjoys this when she does it. it makes her happy, to know her family and husband is happy, and tummy's are too...lol
every lady needs a break, every now and then. she needs to take care of herself too. she could go shopping for an afternoon, go get her nails done, spend an afternoon with a special friend...etc..
i love these special times...
we play such an important role in our family's lives. remember, we are the heart of the home. LORD, help me more in this area...this is my prayer today.
