I thought I would include a quote from Dorothy Patterson to encourage moms in their high calling- may you be renewed in God’s strength this morning.

“Homemaking—being a full-time wife and mother—is not a

destructive drought of usefulness but an overflowing oasis of

opportunity; it is not a dreary cell to contain one’s talents and skills

but a brilliant catalyst to channel creativity and energies into

meaningful work; it is not a rope for binding one’s productivity in the

marketplace, but reins for guiding one’s posterity in the home; it is

not oppressive restraint of intellectual prowess for the community,

but a release of wise instruction to your own household; it is not the

bitter assignment of inferiority to your person, but the bright

assurance of of the ingenuity of God’s plan for the complementarity

of the sexes, especially as worked out in God’s plan for marriage; it is

neither limitation of gifts available nor stinginess in distributing the

benefits of those gifts, but rather the multiplication of a mother’s

legacy to the generations to come and the generous bestowal of all

God meant a mother to give to those He entrusted to her care.”
