Creating balance brings such joy! If you are just joining this series — select the simple weekly calendar category on the right for the previous posts.

Refreshing your memory:  The 8 keynote areas of life for our simple weekly calendar

Spiritual life, Family life, Home Life, Church life/Ministry, Physical Life, Social life/Friends, Financial life,  and Mental life

Home Life: taking good care of the place where our loved ones live. This covers a wide range of activities and a place to let your personal creativity flow.

Reference: “The wise woman builds her house, But the foolish tears it down with her own hand” Proverbs 14:1 — My all purpose scripture for anything concerning ministry to my family. “She looks well to the way of her household,” Proverbs 31:27 and Titus 2:5 “. . . workers at home . . .”

Cleaning:  Is this your strength or your weakness? Always, when unexpected guests arrive I wish I had kept up with this necessity! Remembering that part of the character of a Godly woman is a heart willing to serve and obedience. I was reminded just this morning of Colossians 3:23 “Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord than for men” (or me!)

Decorating:This does not require alot of elaborate bedazzling or create a financial burden for your budget! Keep it simple and personal. A candle on the table (and really burn it!), wildflowers in a pitcher or vase, a new curtain hung, vegetables/fruits in a bowl. Go to the library and check-out past issues of your favorite magazines!

Maintenace and Upkeep: Our dryer has not been working for 3 weeks so I am making that call today. The garden needs tending and preparations for fall that is also on my list this week.  What does your home need to love and care for it as God’s steward?

This is a 10 part series.
