Sometimes I feel like such a copycat! There was a great quote I received through email:
Do you visualize your homemaking, submission, love and reverence to your husband as special assignments from the Lord and use all your energies to accomplish them?
?And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;? (Colossians 3:23)
I read that and when it really sinks in: God placed you in your home, as the wife and mother to your special crew and that is your ordained place in this world. God hand picked you for this job - WOW! When the mudane tasks of cleaning, cooking, cherishing those around us - even when they are cranky, sick or contrary seem to overwhelm us, we can remember that we are "special agents for God", being obedient to Him in the little day by day things.
