Motivational Monday ; "Beatitudes for Women"

Beatitudes for Women

Blessed is she whose daily tasks are a labor of love; for her willing hands and happy heart translate duty into privilege, and her labor becomes a service to God and all mankind.

Blessed is she who opens the door to welcome both stranger and well-loved friend; for gracious hospitality is a test of brotherly love. 

Blessed is she who mends stockings and toys and broken hearts; for her understanding is a balm to humanity. 
Blessed is she who scours and scrubs; for well she knows that cleanliness is one expression of Godliness.

Blessed is she whom children love; for the love of a child is more to be valued than fortune or fame. 
 Blessed is she who sings at her work; for music lightens the heaviest load and brightens the dullest chore.

Blessed is she who dusts away doubt and fear and sweeps out the cobwebs of confusion; for her faith will triumph over all adversity.

Blessed is she who serves laughter and smiles with every meal; for her buoyancy of spirit is an aid to mental and physical digestion.

Blessed is she who preserves the sanctity of the Christian home; for hers is a sacred trust that crowns her with dignity.

----Author Unknown

No matter to what heights God has attained or may attain, he does not stand alone; for side by side with him, in all her glory, a glory like unto his, stands a companion, the Mother of his children. 

For as we have a Father in Heaven, so also we have a Mother there, a glorified, exalted ennobled mother.

That is a startling doctrine, I recognize, to some folks, and yet we ought to be governed by reason in giving consideration to this doctrine which is a revelation from God .....

Motherhood is eternal with Godhood, and there is no such thing as eternal or endless life without the eternal and endless continuation of motherhood. 

---Melvin J. Ballard
