Most know that I work outside of the home, out of necessity. DH and I bought a house last year and are not able to make house payments and survive on just his check. (I've always worked, it's just out of necessity now).
Having said that, I must say that I envy those that can be a full-time homemaker. If you are married, you are a full-time wife/mother. So please don't think I'm ignoring those roles. I do pray that someday I'll be able to be at home full-time, devoting more time to homemaking and volunteer work. Since we do not have children in our home, it's not "vital". (I think our cats are just fine without full time care LOL) I just want to experience that part of my life. Some may say, what are you missing? Well, I believe quite a bit. I do skimp on some things that I would not otherwise. Cleaning for one. Cooking is a major one. No, I don't do much cooking, it's very rare as a matter of fact. But, given the opportunity, I would embrace this whole heartedly.
So, where is this coming from? I'm being sent a new direction by God. I feel the need and desire to embrace my "womanhood" from a Biblical standpoint. Read Proverbs 31 or Titus 2 and compare that to my current life. Pretty far from it right now. There are other things the Lord has set upon my heart. I'm exploring those as well.
I know I'm rambling, I just can't put my thoughts into words today. Sorry, I have another sinus infection and need to call the dr tomorrow and get in to be seen. But, I think my friends know where I'm coming from, so I beg you to please pray that the Lord continue to speak to me and that I follow.
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
