The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. Titus 2:3-5
My husband often says this, "Happy wife, happy life." It makes me smile. I like that he is all out there conquering the world just to make me happy. Well, I am happy. Contented. Thankful!
As much as I want to be out in a cross-cultural setting doing the things I feel wired for, I am happy serving the Lord faithfully in the place where He is planting me right now. A wife and mother! I want God to be glorified in my life as I put my family first- loving, honoring and serving my husband and raising my children in His (Jesus Christ) ways.
I often find my self multi-tasking but I've learned that my work is rewarded with excellence and satisfaction when I do one thing at a time. I have learned to acknowledge and enjoy the seasons of life. I believe that God is pleased when I move only when "His cloud by day and fire by night" moves.
As a wife, I believe that I am to submit to my husband as he submits himself to the Lord. As a mother, I don't believe in trusting the care of my children to someone else on a regular basis (and for long hours) while I go work to earn extra income or worst, as a way of building my self-esteem. My self-esteem is built on how God regards my life. As a homemaker, I want the home that God has blessed us with to be clean, inviting and a place of joy, peace, love. I am involved in the famous "wiping" ministry. I wipe counter tops, floors, my baby's nose and bottom ;) and my friends' tears (occasionally).
I love PP (people and parties!) Parties are a way for me to get to meet and know people. I love hosting parties! A lot of good food, good people, fun and lots of "beautiful talks".
