Lesson Reminders

Monday, Jan. 9, 2017
1974. Me & my first baby, a boy.
My dream was to be a Mother and a wife.
I always wanted to have a boy
first so he could be the protector for my girls!
We learned in this lesson that babies are so sweet and cuddly but
when they are little are the easiest times.
Treasure them because they grow up while you are not looking.
When they are little,
Your children step on your toes.....
When they are grown,
They step on your heart.

Today we talked about slowing down.
There is always so much to do especially for women.
It doesn't matter what's going on, we still know
that the laundry, ironing, cooking, etc.
still has to be done.
I have learned that if you stay home, you save money.
That's a fact.
Some complain that they can't be home all the time,
but treasure the times you are.
Today is all we have.
I have a friend that encouraged me to not let a day pass that I don't do
something for me.
No matter what I am doing, if Sweet Hunter says....."Lets go fishing!" I say, "yes!!!"
Some husbands never ask their wife to do anything with them.
The housework will always be there.
Lighten up. Go have some fun.
Just keep your priorities in order.
Slow down. Enjoy the process.
"Less speed, more haste!"

Today we discussed  how important
it is to keep a clean house but
not to worry about it being company ready.
If it's good enough for your family,
it will be good enough for guests.
After all, your family is the most important people.
Home is suppose to be where we live and relax.
It also is my place of employment.
I am the manager of my home.
Our homes should be a little piece of Heaven to us.
How can it be Heaven if it's not clean?
The whole point of slowing down is to not get sidetracked
going here to there and there to
here never accomplishing a thing.
All day today I sang this song that a sweet friend sent me.
'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His Word
Just to rest upon His promise,
Just to know, "Thus saith the Lord!"…

Cleaning your home and cooking meals for your family, starts with loving them.
It all has to do with attitude.
Sometimes we have to have an attitude adjustment.
Some want to do it all, have the best and go, go, go,
while all the time they have it all right
at home. Learn to appreciate the "little things."
The little things are not out in the world.
They are inside of  YOU.
YOU are home.
Pray for it if you can't find it.
I think Laura Ingalls Wilder captured it best when she said, "And just as a little thread of gold, running through a fabric, brightens the whole garment, so women's work at home, while only the doing of little things, like the golden gleam of sunlight runs through and brightens all the fabric of civilization."

Words.
They tell who we are.
They tell what we listen to.
They tell what we watch.
Words can hurt. Words can encourage.
Words can be forgiven while not ever being  forgotten.
The tongue has no bones yet is strong enough to break hearts.
Words are powerful.
Think before we speak.
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver. Proverbs 25:11
