Beatitudes For Homemakers

*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.
