In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
She is skilled in the crafts of home and hearth, diligent in homemaking.
I have never viewed daily housework as a talent. Have you? But the skills that are needed to run an organized and clean home are an art form in themselves. It takes many years of practice to get it just right and some may never feel adequate at the task. It changed my view to read the message translation that worded it as a craft. Homemaking is actually that, it is arts and crafts. Think about it, you are actually creating something so someone to look at and enjoy like a piece of art work. If you weren’t you wouldn’t spend time on pintrest looking for new ideas to brighten your home, or shopping for a rug or piece of furniture that would look just right. You wouldn’t be vacuuming, dusting and scrubbing your home to make it presentable to your audience. You wouldn’t be working to fix the perfect meal for your family to enjoy. So lets face it we are not just homemakers, we are artists!
Lord, help us to see past the mundane tasks and see them for ways that we can serve our family’s. Help us to have fun as we complete our daily chores and view them as an art form. Amen
