So today as I am ironing cloths I am reflecting back to when my husband and I first were married. How I loved folding his cloths and breathing in his scent. I can still remember that all fulfilling feeling of love. Then came a few babies and seemingly endless piles of laundry that I had no energy to fold let alone take time to enjoy sniffing. Now after 32 some years of marriage and 4 children grown and raised, I realize how fast time flies and how precious those moment were that are lost forever. And again I am taking to sniffing the clothes of those I love most. As I fold my youngest sons shirt, I know it is his and not his brothers because they each have a unique and wonderful scent of their own. I am faced with the fact that my time with my children living in my home is coming to an end. I am blessed to have such wonderful Godly children and I am so very thankful to the God of the universe for allowing me to be the one that got to fold their laundry. If I may encourage you young moms who are still in the endless pile of laundry stage, I would tell you that you are doing a great job! That this will pass and much to quickly! Cherish every toil filled day, every pile of laundry, every plate you wash each nigh after dinner. The time will come when you can rest, and when you do, you want to know that you were a blessing to your children, and they will in turn be a blessing to you! Prov. 31:28-31 Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate. ~~~ I love my life!
