Drawing the Line

Yesterday I was privileged to speak to some wonderful Christian ladies. They were all like me - officially older women with more years behind us than ahead. I wondered if speaking about the vital ministry of establishing Godly homes was a relevant topic. It was.

As I talked about the need to build homes that were havens from the world, places of comfort and peace, refuges from the battle all around;

as I shared a vision of creating a world where memories made were sweet and children longed to return each day with friends in tow, where husbands found solace and ease from weariness, where broken men and women could see something they never had;

as I unveiled scripture regarding the home as the center of ministry (evangelism, discipleship, healing and counsel), the hub of family life, the well-spring of Godly living, a picture itself of God's plan;

as I encouraged them to know it was high time that we, as women, stood strong against the enemy who has been busily assaulting the home-front, refusing to allow him to take this vital tool of ministry from us, the very ones to whom God entrusted the art of home making -

tears filled their eyes.

Words soon formed upon their lips - they were leaving with a mission. "We're going to go make a home," was their earnest reply.

Oh, God, help them in their mission. Help all of us who have been granted the high call of home-making. It is not automatic. It is not easy. But it is noble, it is good, and it is right. And it is blessed by You.

That's exciting!

I'm amazed at the depth of Danica's revelation of such teachings, her willingness and passion to fully embrace all that is Proverbs 31 is an absolutely tremendous ministry to my heart. (And Jameson's too!)

Few things get me more excited and confident about my future than meditating on the goodness of my wife--the stength that she is to me.

Good stuff mom.

Have you ever thought of writing a book (books!) on such topics? Reading your posts brings renewed vision. Thanks.

That said, for those that drive a van for an employer may not be aware that their employer may be responsible for the care of your eyesight and that you may be entitled to certain benefits, like
a free eye-test and the provision of spectacles if you
are found to be in need. After this he is eligible
to register in private and public establishments. The optician will dispense lenses to those who need them.

Pregnant and nursing women are not encouraged to use chamomile in treating hair loss.
They appeal to a woman's innate vanity, they do not warn of the unsafe facet
outcomes that most f the medicine have. While part of that is true, at the root of each hair shaft is actually a seat of biochemical
activity which explains how hair keeps growing about half an inch each month.

If you really want a little gleam to set off the room,
consider using satin finish paint for the trim. Being aware of when and if you have
to call up a plumbing contractor is the first step in a quick and efficient repair
which can last for years. Due to the high level of customization, it is very
easy to ruin or severely impair a character
