Encouragement & The Aprons and Pearls Link~up #2

 Aprons & Pearls Link~up #2

 

This year I have shared about how I have struggled with decluttering  (The Struggle is RealMore Than Just Plasticware), and refocusing on Joy and I shared some Goals that I have set for myself. I have shared before about relying on God’s grace and strength (His Grace Is Enough).

While I love the idea of being the perfect homemaker, I fall short in so many areas.

I am still deciding if I will theme my posts for this link-up, or just stick with inspirational homemaking quotes.

My heart is to serve the Lord in my home, and encourage others to as well. We were made for community, so I am praying this link-up encourages you as a Christian woman, homemaker, and/or mom.

Homemaking is hard work. It usually does not result in pinterest-worthy homes, but we need to keep our reason for doing it right.

Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.

Galatians 6:9

Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.

Colossians 3:23-24

(emphasis mine)

What better encouragement than to know that even if we are doing the dishes, or laundr, we can do it as an act of worship to the Lord.

I have briefly mentioned before that I am planning a big giveaway soon, and I nearly have everything altogether, so stay tuned!

I have made a Pinterest Board for the posts that you link-up, feel free to send me a message over on pinterest to be added. You can click here to check out the board.
