Yesterday I wrote about our big goal. I could look at having to save money as a hardship. Many would. However that would not benefit my family.
Choosing to look at this as a challenge, I plan to make our life enjoyable and create beauty - even though I will be spending as little money as possible. Sounds like an adventure in creativity to me!
Living simply takes work, but it is so rewarding and satisfying.
By the works of my own two hands I can create something out of seemingly nothing at all. To be able to provide a beautiful home-life for my family is fulfilling to my mind, body and spirit.
God created us to work so why do we try to avoid it? The Bible says *"there is profit in all labor" and "those who don't work, should not eat". I may not earn a paycheck outside the home, but I certainly earn my keep.
I am blessed to be able to happily stay home to "keep house". My reward is creating a home my husband is anxious to return to each day after work to unwind and recharge, spending time with my children, and watching our debt decrease as our savings increases.
It may not be a glamorous life, but it is perfectly suited for me.
