Gathering at the Well

Gathering At the Well



Happy Monday! Today is a wonderful day. It is the first day of At the Well. Which is a wonderful new blog for women. This blog is rooted in Titus 2: 1-5 “But as for you, speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine: that the older men be sober, reverent, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience; the older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things— that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed"
How can you go wrong when you try to live in this verse? You can't. It is how we all need to live, to help each other and try to be the best women we can be. Wives and mothers. I believe that happiness is wrapped up in this verse. So head on over to At the Well.....look around and check out all the upcoming topics. Then meet me at the Well.

Todays topic is:
When you read the Scripture found in Titus 2: 2-5, how do you see this playing out in your own life?
Being a SAHM has been a huge blessing for me. I think that this Scripture plays into my everyday life as I try to be the best mom, wife and woman that I can be.

What are your areas of strength? Of weakness? I believe my strength is the love I have for my children and husband. This is a love I never thought was possible. And it seems to grow everyday. My weakness....well, that would be in the homemaker area. I am good with cooking, baking, and things like that but I am totally lacking in the cleaning and organizing department. That is definitely something I need to work on.

If you could set some sort of goal in relation to this Scripture, what would it be? My goal is to work more towards the homemaking part....to get my house organized and under control.

We are ALL on the journey..it's so COOL that areas that we are weak in, we can use others to encourage us and in the areas that we excel we can minister and guide others on the journey!
Thanks for joining us!!
peace,

i think you are too hard on yourself! you've got little ones and you are always baking and playing and you have to make time to rest, so i DO admire your goal, but i like that you are messy, like me!
