What Does Your Kitchen Say?

Kitchen plaques are so popular because they often express exactly how we feel about the tasks of cooking. No matter what the family looks like, they have to eat...and often!

Do any of these resonate with your feelings about cooking?

"I only have a kitchen because it came with the house."
"If you want breakfast in bed - sleep in the kitchen."
"Keep this kitchen clean - Eat Out."
"My next house will not have a kitchen, just vending machines."
"This kitchen is closed due to illness - I'm sick of cooking."
"My dream kitchen has someone else in it cooking and cleaning."
"Two choice for dinner tonight 0 take it or leave it."
"A clean kitchen is the sign of a wasted life."

Like most household chores, some we like, some we dislike, but in the end they all have to be done for a home to run and to meet the needs of the family.

Since vital tasks like feeding the crew need to be done, our attitude while doing it can make a huge difference.  Turning our minds toward thankfulness and away from complaining will bring new life into any situation.  Just look what it can do to our kitchen attitude: 

"Love bakes good cakes and brews good stews."
"Mom's kitchen - Love served here."
"The kitchen is the heart of the home."
"Divine service rendered here - 3 times a day."

For the Christian woman, our family and home are blessings we are given that along with the daily tasks we find a sense of unequaled purpose. "Home is not an add-on to our spiritual life. Home, family, home, is part and parcel of our discipleship and our calling as children of God."  When we serve our family, we serve the Lord.  May we do it all with gladness!  

"And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men," Colossians 3:23
