Hello sweet friends, many of us ladies carry a heavy load on our shoulders with the task of home, family, farm, budget, and much more.
Sometimes we lug around heavy purses on our shoulders filled with things that weigh us down.
Some of those things in our purses may be things that we are burdened over, or things that you carry around for your children.
We find ourselves lugging them in and out to places on our shoulders, and when we lean over to care for the children it is constantly slipping off the shoulders, which adds more stress to our day. Anybody?
Have you ever traded the large purse for a cute, around the body purse when you go to town or a mini trip? Oh my goodness, it is such a care free feeling. It is so much lighter, and it only has your basic needs in it.
Another lightening your load suggestion, is the cell phone. I don't have a Smart phone. I just have text & talk phone. When my hubby is home for the weekend, I leave home without my phone. If anyone needs me they will contract him.
When I am home during the weekend, I turn my phone off. It is such a wonderful feeling to turn off the stress. Purge your phone; delete some apps, and some social accounts that may be pulling on your emotions and weighs you down. Step away from the drama!
Our goal as wives and mothers is to keep our lives and home peaceful.
The Bible teaches us to think on whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of a good report: if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
So, be-careful on what you are putting into your thoughts.
Watch your time on the cell phone. Make sure you are giving 100 % of your time to your Lord, to your husband, to your children, and to your home.
One of our daughters only looks at her phone in the evenings. After she has given her family, and her Lord her day. She doesn't have any social media accounts. Instead, she likes to read ways to care for her family and home. I am very proud of her.
Keep life simple! I would love to hear from you.
