Nothing brings me greater joy than being a wife and mom. I love the work and effort it requires. I love taking my job seriously. (while having some fun!)
I was reading in Proverbs this week about laziness and doing your work diligently.
Laziness casts one into a deep sleep, And an idle person will suffer hunger.
I do not take my "homemaking" lightly. I want to serve and work for my family with a cheerful and deliberate heart.
The soul of a lazy man desires, and has nothing; But the soul of the diligent shall be made rich.
I choose to not be lazy in my home. I choose to take it serious and put great effort into my husband and kids. I choose to be intentional and deliberate with my family. I choose to teach my kids the Word- I choose to make them feel special and put intentional effort into pouring into their lives.
Colossians 3:17 and 3:23
And whatever you do in the word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him
And whatever you do , do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men.
Whether it's planning tea parties, birthday parties, menus, cleaning, extra activities, family outings, serving opportunities, or just little surprises. I thank the Lord for my opportunity and I want to do it all to glorify Him.
With all that being said............
We were blessed to celebrate our first born's 3 year old birthday this month. We had an Angel Tea Party.
We read angel books, made angel crafts, and talked about Angels.
The girls dressed up as sweet angels for the party.
What a sweet memory!
What a blessing it is to put effort into my family and pour love and encouragement into their lives!
