Today is Tuesday and I continue with my Taking Care Tuesday series.
Motherhood 101 – ‘If you save your life, you loose it – but if you loose your life, for My sake – you find it.’ The words of Christ. (Luke 17:33)
In short – ‘She who refreshes others – will herself be refreshed.’ (Proverbs 11:35)
I’d love to hear your ideas on refreshing the members of your family.
The simple things make all the difference; like a fresh candle burning, dinner on the stove, a fire in the fireplace, your favorite perfume and flowers on the front porch. Refreshing goes much deeper with; listening face-to-face, stopping to acknowledge the value of the child speaking, being available for conversation – as you drive or sharing meals together. Refreshing goes deepest in; a mother’s prayers, standing on God’s promises through hard times, speaking God’s word over our children, believing in their dreams and getting to know them as individuals rather than extensions of ourselves.
Refreshing brings a heart connection between others and ourselves. The definition of refresh is: Give new strength or energy to; reinvigorate. For the giver – in the fashion of sowing and reaping – we ourselves emerge refreshed.
In a world that’s grown cold and indifferent – let us bring freshness to everyday life – right here at home.
There’s so much more to say. Please leave a comment or a link and tell us your ideas.
