Super Mom, Wife, Nurse, Teacher, Cheff,... ?

    What does a regular day looks like for a homeschool mom looks like? I can tell you is CRAZY BUSY! or busy enogh, or not too bad. I can make it sound like I'm super mom or not. We love to make our days sound busier, because it makes us feel important and industrious, so that we can be admired!.. yes, there are days that seem like everything landed on that day and you have not a moment to sit down in a quiet place and enjoy a cup of tea with the book that you are reading. Yes, those days exist!. there are weeks that are insane, because of commitments that we make, or doctor appointments or visit to the dentist, friends or family visiting, ... or any number of things... but certanly, is not the every day life.

I beleive, that our outlook on our day has to do with being content with what God has given us. Not complaining with what we have to do, and how little we are appreciated or how the housework is so useless, since the next day we'll have to do it all over again! Also, not making it sound better and bigger than it is... in that we sin.

I am praying that the Lord reminds me ever day, that He is giving me a great oportunity to serve Him in secret. Where no one will know how hard I work, how much time I invest, with how much love I do what I do, but that my reward will be in heaven. And my hope in seeing my kids walking in the truth.

Do not get tired of doing good.. how much more do we ask for? we have the greatest oportunity to do good every day in the life of our family, serve them, make a heaven in our houses and a home that can be used by God to be a blessing to others.

Do we complain about our daily routines? Do we exalt our days to be appreciated if not by our families, by our friends?, Do we  work at it as if we were working for the Lord and not for men? ... I certanly fall short.. I seek the praise once in a while of my family and get frustrated if I don't get it..... but then again, who I am serving?.

Lately, I have been thinking (maybe because I found many of my friends from when I was a teen, when I went to a very charismatic church) that I'm so very grateful to my Lord for all the work He has done in my life and my husband's. How God gave us light. How He opened our eyes little by little.

I grew up being a Christian, and I have always.. or as far as I remember,  loved God (even in my sin, I was always with that guilty feeling). But always saw friends that knew God when they were older and the change in them is SO clear.. from dead to alive!,  and wondered about my life, my changes.. there has been changes, but I do not think that it has been the "before and after" type of change. It has been a slow process through all my life, with ups and downs, with desserts and valleys, but at the end,  God has been faithful in keeping me in His way.

Getting in touch with old friends, reminded me, the way I used to think about God, the way I used to read His Word, the way I used to pray. It has been a long way!. Sanctification was not part of my vocabulary. Holiness was a very sofft word. Mortification of sin, never heard it before. The Sovereignty of  God was not mentioned. Doctrine, was for "certain" people only.  And it humbles me to see God's work in me. To see his precious hand upon me. To see His work and understand, not by emotions, but by His holy and precious Word, that I need to be holy because I serve a holy God.

How excted I am to see His hand, guiding every step of our life. It is SO encouraging, to know, that He will continue His work in me. He has been faithful so far, and He will continue to do so. He has been so good to us!  It is really AMAZING!, And I am so very thankful that He allowed me to see His work. And be encouraged by it.

Too dependant on appliances..

One of those weeks.. started when the dryer stopped working, outside these days is still cold with snow and all.... I can't just hang my clothes for the fresh summer breeze to dry them,.. no, they are all over my basement, every little space I found was turned into a clothes line. That is OK, I can manage that I just hope is not too expensive. When I go upstairs.. there is a puddle on my kitchen floor, the dishwasher is leaking!! WHAT! not that too!. I start cleaning the puddle and trying to understand why is it leaking, there is nothing broken that I can see from my perspective. So I am just hoping that it will just heal and get better soon. The next day, I started vacuuming, and the central vac, starts spitting dust all over the floor!. It is not doing its job. it is making it worst!.

At this point I am about to cry.. out loud!.

Husband is panicking too, more about the cost of it that the actual labor that is saving me from doing... me?... forget the cost!, I want my machines working!.

Thankfully, the story ends very happy for both of us. the dryer was under guarantee, so they came to fix it temporally until they get the broken piece. The dishwasher, healed, and is been healthy for the last days!. The vacuum cleaner... swallowing everything as it should!.

I am SO thankful to have my appliances back, but maybe I'm a little too dependant on them. It does help me to appreciate having them, and treat them nice for their hard work around the house!
