I just got off the phone with another sister who is struggling with issues related to homeschooling and getting back into “the groove” and “routine” of so much to do with the covenant education of her children but also reconditioning herself to long days of teaching and oversight as well as the regular chores of the day. I can relate and was reminded that our mothers, sisters, daughters are all going through this right now and the need for us who have “empty nests” to pray unceasingly for them that God would strengthen them in all of their duties and keep them healthy, give them the opportunity for eating correctly, time for exercise and for quality time with their husbands as well as a good night’s sleep. It is a must to be a good “time manager” to not have chaos in the home. I was also reminded that many of us only have an 8-10 hour day but our mothers have a 24-hour one! God has given women a full plate and by His grace and provision we can do it all. Thanks be to God for all of His gifts.
