“Let us fix our eyes upon Jesus”, Hebrews 12:2
“Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of this earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
(Helen H. Lemmel, 1922)
In a culture that is always on the go, we have lost sight of how important it is for our children to be shaped, first, by their Creator. Living for Christ is squeezed in between practices and games, movies, and “play dates”, or worse, not talked about at all. Meals are eaten in the car or in front of the television instead of around the table as a family and are rarely, if ever, made from scratch by mom. We, as women, have lost our sense of duty as the “keeper of the home” (Titus 2:5) and over the years we’ve even lost our ability to find joy and satisfaction in matters of the home. But, we do believe that that can change!! We can reclaim the territory that God ordained ours and in doing so, give our children memories of HOME that will last a lifetime!! We can feed them homemade meals that fill the house with delicious aromas and their bodies with the best nutrition! We can protect our children’s innocence from a culture that is full to the gills of sin! We can encourage and trust our husbands to be the spiritual leaders of our families! And most importantly, we can teach our children what it means to be a child of God!! WE CAN!!!
