Ironing Not Required or The Me I Long To Be

I stand before twenty-two of my husband’s  button down, collared shirts this morning and am considering taking on a task I have long avoided. As a self-confessed domestically challenged diva I wholeheartedly embrace reality. But reality is, I love my man, and certainly want to be a blessing…maybe even do the thing I despise most. After toilet bowl scouring, spider killing, cooking, dusting, floor washing…oh hey, wait…the list is too long. Stay with me-back to ironing.

You could say,  ironing and me go together like…oil and vinegar.

BUT, as  one who believes old dogs can learn new  tricks and miracles still happen, I will share with you this  post about my domestically challenged life and how God is still working on me in this area, on the OTHER side of fifty.

 

Hope you enjoy this little re-post from 2014…and the invitation at the end.

A Homemaker’s Prayer

12729477923_b004f4af67_b

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.  2 Peter 1:3

Isn’t it beautiful that redemption is written into the rhythm of every day? Each new month is a fresh start. Each week, even provides this same message.

We stumble into the truth as we bump into our unholiness, look in the mirror- catch a glimpse of our own lack. Each moment we seek His mercy, there it is, fresh and faithful…for He alone is faithful.

Rejoice with me for the new beginnings found in the everyday moments when we realize our need…and recognize that we cannot come up empty-handed when we have One who has freely given us everything

A prayer for the start of a new week…
