Today is my husbands birthday. We’re going to be staying home, spending time together as a family. ( I might get him to rearrange a few things in the house…but that’s not very ‘birthday’ like is it?!) Talking about his birthday wasn’t my goal for today’s post. So let’s get too it!
I’m a poor housewife. I’m not consistent with my schedules. I make too many lists and then don’t look at them again. I’ve made who knows how many household binders, and read countless blogs on how to keep a nice home.
It hasn’t stuck. I’m lazy. Thats all there is too it.
But I can’t escape the fact that my home is my ‘job’. I need to keep on keeping on with it. Praying that one day, things will click, they will flow, we’ll have found the right combination of organizational tools to help ME stay on top of it.
I pray often, to be more consistent, more diligent. I ask that He changes my attitude about homemaking, ‘chores’, etc. All those things that I don’t like to do…well…they are my chosen job, besides taking care of and raising our children.
Contentment. That is the key.
I’m learning it. Slowly but surely, I’m learning the art of making a home. Keeping my family well. Loving through service to them and their physical needs. S.L.O.W.L.Y. Did I mention slowly?!
So today…is another day in which I will try again, to be responsible and loving, serving my family and their needs above my own lazy nature.
What skills do you need to work on? What do you pray and submit to God on a daily basis?
