Beatitudes For Homemakers

Beatitudes For Homemakers
by Ella May Miller

*Blessed is she whose daily tasks are a work of love;
 for her willing hands and happy heart transform duty into joyous service to all her family and God.

*Blessed is she who opens the door to welcome both stranger and well-loved friends;
for gracious hospitality is a test of brotherly love.

*Blessed is she who meads both stockings and broken toys and broken hearts;
for her understanding is a balm to her husband and children.

*Blessed is she who scours and scrubs;
for well she knows that cleanliness is one expression of godliness.

*Blessed is she whom children love;
for the love of a child is of greater value than fortune or fame.

*Blessed is she who sings in her work;
 for music lightens the heaviest load and brightens the dullest chore.

*Blessed is she who dusts away doubt and fear and sweeps all the cobwebs of confusion;
for her faith will triumph over all adversity.

*Blessed is she who serves laughter and smiles with every meal;
for her cheerfulness is an aid to mental and physical digestion.

*Blessed is she who introduces Jesus Christ to her children;
for Godly sons and daughters shall be her reward.

*Blessed is she who preserves the sacredness of the Christian home;
for hers is a divine trust that crowns her with dignity.
Hope this was an encouragement to you!
