Beattitudes for Homemakers

Save to list

Beattitudes for a Housewife
by Mary Mae Oesch

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 home; for hers is a sacred
trust that crowns her with dignity.
