I knew the foundation of our HOME needed some work. Relationships. Nutrition-meals. And our marriage - time spent with my Hubby (Daddy Rooster)! But then we added the little storms and I saw that my heart needed to be in the right place as well. Yes, God is calling me HOME. The highest and the most beautiful calling is to my family. I picked up a book from the library called Passionate Housewives Desperate for God by Chancey and McDonald. It really helped put some things into perspective for me as a Homemaker. I appreciated the biblical view of our often misguided perception of such an important profession. Although there are areas in the book that I know is not me as well and have a hard time stomaching, I can keep an open heart and let God mold me into the Homemaker He designed ME to be! Read it if you dare!
God has been so gracious to me during this hard time. He has given me a scripture when all I had was literally a minute to read His Word! He has spoken to my heart re: relationships with my peeps. Shown me where I've been wrong. Or where I've been looking at situations through my own wrong colored glasses and not through His perfect ones! Shown me where I am strong. Given me such a blessing in my wonderful husband that is my best friend! And He's somehow kept me physically going! He is Good!
I'm off now to help a chickie climb into a chair, read a book to another chickie wanting my time, and holding a bowl for the third chickie to puke into! And in the midst of some tears, I'm happy to be the one to do all of this and more! I love being Mama Hen!
