Work with your hands

"Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody." 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12.

I like the verse above. I don't always follow it perfectly, being quiet and minding my own business aren't always my strong suits but I am trying. It does make me realize just how important my job as a homemaker can be. Not only do I get the privilege of caring for my family but also in living a quiet, simple life I can win the respect of outsiders. Hopefully I won't just win their respect but they will want to know more about the God that I am serving.

I do also enjoy the part of working with my hands and not being dependant on anybody. I really enjoy trying all sorts of things and learning how to make the things we need from what God has given us and not have to rely on stores and stuff like that.

The picture above is of Megan's hand. She has been very into hands lately, loving to trace them and then she wanted me to take this picture.
