You may have noticed that I've not been blogging much lately. I haven't had the time or the creativity to come up with any interesting posts, though I have read some great articles on other blogs and thought that I would pass them along.
Kelly at Generation Cedar has a lot of good, encouraging, challenging things to say. This post about stay-at-home moms is no exception.
My good friend Nikki linked to this post about successful homemaking last week and I thought it was well worth sharing.
And here's another one from Generation Cedar about working...our attitude towards it and what we are teaching our children about it.
Jesus’ life was one continuing “pouring out” of himself physically, emotionally and spiritually. He lived to be spent and then He told us to copy Him. There were short reprieves, yes, but probably not as much as we get each night when we sleep for 8 hours at a time.
- Am I raising my children to whine about some work load they have, or am I raising them to delight in being used up for Him?
- Am I teaching them that “to save your life you must lose it”?
- Am I reading about and pointing to the heroes of the faith for them to emulate?
- Am I teaching them to “do hard things” and rejoice in it?
- Am I demonstrating, by my life, that serving is a privilege?
- Am I framing their worldview through the lens of “esteeming others better than himself”?
