Walk within my house

I have been thinking of this verse so much lately.
I am home so much and sometimes can feel discouraged
and the Lord keeps bringing this verse to mind:
Psalms 101:2
I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way.
O when wilt thou come unto me?
I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.
I think this is a great verse to memorize when
you seem like you are overwhelmed in your home...or maybe
sometimes it can seem like drudgery and the *enemy* wants
to tell you, that being a homemaker is useless...you know all
of the many circumstances that can seem to undermine
the job of being a homemaker. For me it has been health issues.
I love how the Lord has verses for every life situation in
This spoke to me, and hope it does to you too.

Great post Deby..

Women should realize that it is an HONOR to be a homemaker!! To be a blessing to our husbands and whoever visits..and finds our homes in not only order...but homey and welcoming with CONTENTMENT!

There is no place like HOME...when peace dwells within!!

God bless you with good days and thanks for being a blessing...from your HOME!

Hi dear Deby~
I am so sorry it has been simply ages since I last visited. I have been in a quiet place, with some family issues, and I haven't updated any of my blogs since before christmas. But I had you on my heart and wanted to drop by and say hi. I hope to resume blogging again soon. Praise God because our hope is in Him. hugs and blessings, dear sister. Love Sandra nz
