"But what do you do all day?
I cannot imagine being home all day every day."
Early in my marriage I asked this question and gave this answer often.
How would I ever go from the teaching profession to a homemaker?
With every move or change in church, the question returns,
but God is faithful.
I am not home all day every day.
There are so many ministries in a small church that working men and busy moms just don't have time for.
There is office work, cleaning opportunities, music ministry, meals, visiting, driving, website upkeep ...
I have a home, yard, and garden to take care of.
I love having the time to create a peaceful space and then to enjoy that space in the evening with hubby.
I have unique ministries to my hubby -
I never would have imagined that I would be editing and helping to publish books.
So on those days when I feel "bored,"
I have only to pray - to ask God to help me see the needs -
to ask Him to help me to be willing and able to meet those needs -
Needs and opportunities that I might be too tired to meet if I was devoting 8 hours to a job outside the home.
