The Blessed Woman

This beautiful poem is displayed on our fridge door for us all to read and remember...  It clearly illustrates the woman who puts God first in everything, from her children and husband, to her chores and her household duties.  God says women like the one mentioned in the poem are blessed above others because they strive to serve Him everyday, even in the little things, such as serving a humble meal to their families or humming a melody as they do a particularly unpleasant chore...  

Dear friends let us be encouraged, even if we won't yet have husbands and children of our own, to serve God in every aspect of our daily life.  If we are blessed enough to still be at home under the protection of our mothers and fathers, may we go about our chores with a smile on our faces and a song in our hearts and never forget how important it is to show love and grace to everyone, including our small brothers and sisters!

The Blessed Woman

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.

Blessed is she who opens the door to welcome both stranger and well-loved friends; for gracious hospitality is a test of brotherly love.

Blessed is she who mends both stocking and broken toys and broken hearts; for her understanding is a balm to her husband and children.

Blessed is she who scours and scrubs; for well she knows that cleanliness is one expression of Godliness.

Blessed is she whom children love; for the love of a child is of greater value that fortune or fame.

Blessed is she who sings in her work; for music lightens the heaviest load and brightens the dullest chore.

Blessed is she who dusts away doubt and fear and sweeps all the cobwebs of confusion; for her faith will triumph over all adversity.

Blessed is she who serves laughter and smiles with every meal; for her cheerfulness is an aid to mental and physical digestion.

Blessed is she who introduces Jesus Christ to her children; for Godly sons and daughters shall be her reward.

Blessed is she who preserves the sacredness of the Christian home; for hers is a divine trust that crowns her with dignity.
