I was thinking yesterday about the book that I found at the library for 25¢ and how thankful I was for this small blessing from the Lord. And it caused me to think back on God’s faithfulness to us through the years. I am reminded of the fact that in just a few weeks, I will have been a full-time homemaker for 26 years! I was a fairly new Christian, and the Lord was putting the desire on my heart to stay at home. I remember searching the Bible and praying to see if this really was His will for me, and encouraged when I saw that it was! It was so exciting because as my husband was praying along with me, the Lord gave him wisdom for how we could pay our car off. We prayed and planned, taking care of necessary things, and all the while I counted down the days until I could be at home! I remember how excited I was to begin my homemaking journey, but I think 26 years later I am even more excited about the wonderful and fulfilling calling that it truly is! ♥
And God has been so faithful to us! When I stopped working outside the home, my husband was making a very small salary and we just about had everything budgeted down to the very last penny! We have had many lean and stretching times since then, but the Lord has been our provider and seen us through.
Being a homemaker has been one of my greatest joys! ♥
May your day be blessed!
