A while back, I asked the Lord to restore to me the joy of homemaking. I’d completely lost any and all desire to cook, clean, launder, decorate, organize ….
Granted, homemaking is much more than those tasks, but the ones I mentioned take up a lot of time and energy of every woman trying to fulfill the Biblical command to be a keeper at home. In all fairness (because it’s important that everything be fair, right?), I was on the tail end of raising three children. Grandchildren had come into the picture. And then we bought a farmhouse that was a legit, one and a half year re-run of The Money Pit.
