It's Spring!

 Spring cleaning... I could do this the rest of my life!!! :D Oh wait....

 There is just something about nice, 60 degree weather, having the windows open, an old record playing, and being on your hands and knees scrubbing floors. It's so fun! It's so enjoyable. :D

 Who ever said that being a stay at home daughter was boring, and a waste of your life?  It's so fulfilling to scurry about cleaning, cooking and singing. :)

 I've tried the whole deal of going to work and helping to support the family. That's fun and all. It's great to know you're able to help the family, and be useful to others.
 It's great having opportunity to witness to others while you work.   But there is nothing like being a homemaker. :D

 Proverbs 31:13
 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

 Part of "worketh willingly with her hands" is house work.  And it can be fun!  Provided we have the right heart attitude. 

 Proverbs 31:17
 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

 Believe me. It takes strength to scrub floors ;)  Staying at home does not mean you're doing nothing! There is So much to do at home. 

 Proverbs 31:27
She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

 Looking well to the ways of your household... that can be taken many different place, and still not be off topic. :)  

 I think most of us see it as keeping things running smoothly. Having supper on the table at a good time, keeping things clean, and tidy.   But it goes deeper than that. 

 There is more to looking well the ways of your household than having the house clean.  There must be a joyful spirit, a cheerful, humble attitude.  

 A Servant's Heart ~ Ron Hamilton

Make me a servant like you, dear Lord, Living for others each day.
Humble and meek, helping the weak, Loving in all that I say

Make me a witness like You dear Lord, Showing the love of the cross,
Sharing Your Word till all have heard, Serving whatever the cost.

Give me Lord, a servant's heart. Here's my life take every part. Give me Lord a servant's heart.
Help me draw so close to You that Your love comes shining through. 
Give me Lord, a servant's heart. Give me Lord a servant's heart.

 Rather than just getting/keeping the house clean, we should be ever cheerful, and encouraging to those around us.  

 If we are truly Daughters Of The King, we will reflect His image.  We will be the "happy homemaker" He intended us to be. :) 

 It is so fulfilling to have a clean house, a nice meal on the table and a bright, cheerful smile on the face when the others come in, tired from work.   When there is so much pressure on everyone, it's nice for them to see one cheerful face when they come home.  And I'm going to be sure they see it here in "my" home. :) 

 It's glorious to be a stay at home daughter, and to be in training.   Cleaning is so fun! Especially with good music to sing along with, birds singing outside, and a fresh spring breeze coming in the windows. :D

Proverbs 31:31
Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

Colossians 3:23-24
And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

           Happily Homemaking
