Pondering Home PT 2

I posted a few days ago about pondering home.  I posted the Beatitudes For Homemakers by Ella May Miller and said I was going to post my thoughts about each section.  I was a bit ambitious in saying I'd do it daily...LOL!  I'll do it weekly hopefully on Saturdays.

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.

Until recently I looked at my daily tasks as something dreadful!  Something I just did not want to do.  But I realize now that everything I do needs to glorify God.  If I am complaining and grouchy each time I have to complete a task or do something I just don't want to do I need to stop and thank God for the healthy hands for which I will complete my tasks.  Also, thank Him for my healthy family for whom I am caring for.

I can not train my daughters to be keepers at home if I myself and not keeping home with a joyous heart.  Once we are back home I'm going to work very hard at being joyous in my daily chores.

Psalm 35:9
 And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD; It shall rejoice in His salvation.

Very good admonitions, and I especially liked the part where it said, "for her willing hands and happy heart transform duty into joyous service to all her family and God."
Thanks,
