|Where I'd like to be most of the day!!!|
Coming home later in life has also shown me things I didn't realize about myself: I'm exceedingly self-centered (not God-centered), selfish and whiny. As I clean house, I am noticing spots I never saw in my own soul. Dusting the plant shelves, I'm also dusting out selfishness and laziness. I knew these issues about myself while I was working but when one gets out of God's way and starts doing things His way, these defects become more obvious. I've also heard it said that the closer you get to God, the more conscious you are of your sin. That is definitely truth!
I've been starting each day with a devotion time which is a blessing. My day goes much more smooth when I do. I've also been doing baby steps on FlyLady which helps me. Listening to Nancy on Revive Our Hearts is another blessing. There is a great series on homemaking here. Do you have a favorite homemaking podcast? There aren't too many out there.
I hope you're having a wonderful day!
|We certainly have it easier than homemakers before us!|
P.S. I found an awesome Christian homemaking podcast. Homemakers by Choice and their link on iTunes is here.
