In Stacy MacDonald and Jennie Chancey's book "The Passionate Housewives Desperate for God" Dorothy Patterson describes her frustration with societys disdain for the homemaker and its insistence on the replaceability of the wife and mother. The amazing double standard...
"Of course, much of the world would agree that being a housekeeper is acceptable as long as you are not caring for your own home; treating men with attentive devotion would also be right as long as the man is the boss in the office and not your husband; caring for children would even be deemed heroic service for which presidential awards could be given as long as the children are someone else's and not your own."
The world lies to our hearts that caring for our families is not noble, that caring for our homes is bondage.
The word of God speaks of a different promise...
"Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her"
Happy Mothers Day to all the beautiful mothers out there serving and loving on their families daily!
