Shalom, I hope all is well with you all. Hope everyone reading this is safe and healthy. I am personally excited about the coming festival season. While the world is in bad shape and feuding over tweets, we will be with the Most High Yah. Halleluyah!
Let us continue to read and study, Proverbs 31. Verse 27:She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. As I have stated in previous blogs, the woman natural place is in the home. I am not trying to offend career women. The word for”watch” in the Hebrew is, tsaphah. “Tsaphah“, means to lay and wait for a sign. Women are the gatekeepers of the home. In my own experience as a stay-at-home mom, I have realized that my job is never done. Unlike when I was working, I never get a day off. After planning, cooking, cleaning, taking care of a toddler, and teenager(not to mention the dog); I am exhausted at the end of the day. No important job is easy, but it is by far the job I am proudest of.
Verse 28:Her children arise and call her blessed: her husband also, and he praises her. I’ve also learned after almost two years of not working, that my children are my biggest fans. Mama can do no wrong in their eyes. Since the time I was young, I always dreamt of having an important job that allowed me to make a lot of money. But, no matter how I performed on my jobs, I never got the appreciation I felt I deserved.No matter what position I obtained, I was still unhappy. But, in my household, my work is highly appreciated. No one can love me or praise me more than my children. Their very survival depends on me and my ability to take care of them. No company I’ve ever worked for depended on my performance to stay afloat. I was replaceable, but not at home. I was searching for something that I would accomplish simply by being what Yah already made me. If my husband is my boss and I am his only employee, I don’t have to compete with other employees. It is the perfect job, and I reap all the benefits. Hope this helps someone. Shalom
