Home Work

"Homemaking is an art, and you have the privilege of expressing and developing all your talents.  There in a little place called home.  You get to yourself. You get to read and study and grow and master nutrition, finances, horticulture, design, wardrobe, etc. And you also get to shape your children, to give them a bent toward God. To nurture their souls with the good things of God. To pass on the truth about Jesus to one more generation. And to do so means you've got to be dedicated, organized, and a woman of purpose. And you've got to have spunk and energy to follow through on all the dedication, organization, and purpose that answering God's high calling to homemaking requires." Elizabeth George, A Woman's High Calling

This morning as I was walking and listening to Erwin at Mosaic, he was talking about unleashing your potential.  In short his points were: 
1. work hard  
2. work hard at what comes easy 
3. work hard till it hardly seems like work at all and lastly 
4. work hard at what's most important

It was such a good talk and I was so encouraged.  It made me think so much about this quote from Elizabeth George. ( I didn't find that on my own - a fellow homeschooler emailed it - Thanks Cherri!) Homemaking is hard work and some days it does not come easy, but there are days that it is not work at all and I know that pouring my life into my husband and kids is my most important calling. 

 If you are a fellow homemaker, may God give you all the spunk and energy you need today!

His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 2 Peter 1:3
