Homemaker Beatitudes

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 stockings 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 than 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.
