Hello, I’m Sharon. I’m 52, and have been married for 31 years. We have two grown daughters whom I homeschooled most of their school years and one daughter who is in the 4th grade in our public school.
More than anything else, I want to be the kind of woman God wants me to be. The overwhelming and immeasurable love that God has shown to us all, begs for the natural response of giving back that love to Him. Yet, I fall so very short. I’ve always wanted to just sit at the feet of Jesus, as it were, rather than do the work of home keeping. I’ve always been this way, and now, after 31 years of marriage, I wonder if I can ever learn to be a home keeper. At an age I should be teaching the younger women as in Titus 2:3-5, I still need to learn how to be a “keeper of the home”. I regretedly missed that very important lesson.
So here I am, struggling to get out from all the clutter and dirty dishes and weeds and half finished projects and laundry. Will I be able to become a real manager of my home? I’ve raised two daughters and given them unhappy memories of their mother’s slob ways. Will I be able to get my act together before my third daughter leaves home?
