Domestic Life

so what is it about clothes hanging on a line that makes me feel like a real housewife who lives in the country?
initially when my husband told me to start using the clothesline i felt rather…put out.
i thought to myself, "easy for you to say. you aren't the one that has to lug the clothes over there in the hot sun.
i was doing just fine, saving money even, washing & drying our clothes at night. plus i could take my time & take care of this while the boy is sleeping."
but, i gotta tell you, i find it rather rewarding. i still hate lugging the clothes over to the line in the heat of the day, but it is so sweet to look out & see little clothes blowing in the breeze. plus i feel like a housewife from days ago.
i used to be one of those women who would say that i can do anything a man can do. GOD has been doing a work in my heart. since i decided to commit my life to GOD He has been showing who i am. who He has created me to be, what my purpose is. once i asked GOD is all that i was going to be is a mom? i was so screwed up. i wanted to feel validated. i wanted to think that i was important like everyone else. i feel to the pressure that my current fiancée was placing on me. conventional views say that you haven't made it in this life until you become someone... until you graduate from such & such with ____________degree & work for__________________ company in _______________ position. but that is not at all what GOD says. GOD bless those who are following their hearts are the vice president of Abc company. but that isn't what GOD wants from us, He wants us to act as if our hearts belong to Him & we have sought out what plans He has for us Proverbs 16:3 says{Commit your actions to the Lord,
and your plans will succeed. & Psalm 37:5 tells us Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you.} at all times we are to act as if our work matters. even the little things, not because of the honor & critique we may receive from others or superiors but because Colossians 3:23 says {Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.}
be blessed where you are & know that GOD loves you always
