Here I go!
Well, my purpose for this post is to show my outfits for Feminine Farmgirl’s April challenge. Ever since I became convicted to wear modest clothes I’ve struggled between wearing practical and feminine clothes. (Momma’s been trying to tell me that!) I have found this challenge very helpful because it has reminded me that God desires us girls to be feminine. (I knew that, but was having a difficult time applying it :). I think this challenge has helped me become more mindful of how feminine and modest I can be. I’m excited as God takes me down this new path!
Greetings from a lovely Missouri afternoon and a sister with dishes in the sink! : )
Today is Friday and I have been washed over with a list of to-do’s. I was surprised with a work schedule for this weekend and although I enjoyed my first day back as a cook I came home to the realization that the work has only begun. Dishes have piled themselves high, laundry limply overflows the basket, and a bathroom screams in need of attention. Don’t forget the sweeping and mopping which needs done. : ) I ask myself, “How shall I get through all of this?” A few things come to mind and I hope to apply them.
~ Give praise that I am learning to keep a home now and not later.
~ Give thanks that we have dirty dishes to wash, dirty clothes in the basket, and a family to pick up after.
~ Praise the Lord for His care, for my ability to clean up, a momma who taught me how, modern convinieces, and a dishwasher!
~ Put some lovely godly music on to uplift and encourage my day.
~ Realize that my duties have been given to me by the Creator and Lord of the universe and that I have the blessed privilege of making home a clean and joyful place to be!
