Setting Priorities

Today was a glorious day it was beautiful weather and it was the Lords day. I read over at Divine she was writing about how we can get sidetracked from our duties as wives and mothers. We can get sidetracked by things that in and of themselves are good I know for me this is so true. She gives examples of healthy eating, blogging etc. I know for me I do get extremely sidetracked with these things and more. I believe we were put here to be our husbands wives and helpmates and our childrens mothers nurturing, training, and teaching them. After God these are our top priorities and I for one don't always have this in the right order. I know this is a short post today and I haven't written in a while but I will be back to blogging really soon.

Striving to live simply

I am learning many homemaking task that I some how missed growing up. I am learning how to clean properly, cook new and different foods, how to knit,and to sew. I would love to learn how to maybe grow a small garden nothing big. I am sort of a homebody and really have to make myself be sociable. But I do feel we all need really good girl friends we can talk and share things with. My mother was a sahm she is great she cooked, and cleaned and took care of all of us 3 girls and my dad who was a physician and worked lots of nights. I am sure I had many opportunities to learn these skills I probably just wasn't really interested. I am now though and I am on my journey to learn. I also feel that along the way at least for me we have lost the art of being feminine acting like ladies and I for one am going to change some things in my actions and in my dress. We have the ability to be lovely and feminine and I believe that is how God wants us to be. I have so much stuff all around my house things I should get rid of and some things I can sell. It is just a matter of going through things. These are just some random thoughts on how I can begin to live a more simple life.
