New! Meaningful Mondays

Welcome to Meaningful Mondays by the Cottage Homestead. I am very excited, this is the first time I have done something like this, I enjoy linking up to other awesome blogs and thought I'd try this myself. So if you see some glitches, bear with me!!! :)

This is a place you can link up and share how you are making your Monday Meaningful. Monday's are hard sometimes, a fresh new week with new challenges arising as well!

Meaningful Mondays is a place of encouragement, if your Monday is not going quite as planned  or desired.  Please share below using the Linky Tool how you are going to make your Monday a Meaningful one!!!

If you so desire to write a post on your blog about it and then link up here.  You can find my button for Meaningful Mondays on the right with the html code below it. If you please, be sure to add the button which will link back to here. :)

Feel free to comment here, and share via Facebook, let's make it a Meaningful Monday.

Beatitudes for a Homemaker

Blessed is she whose daily tasks are a labor of love; for her willing hands and happy heart translate duty into privilege; and her labor becomes a service to God and all mankind.

Blessed is she who opens the door to welcome both stranger and well-loved friend; for gracious hospitality is a test of brotherly love.

Blessed is she who mends stockings and toys and broken hearts; for her understanding is a balm to humanity.

Blessed is she who scours, for well she knows that cleanliness is one expression of godliness.

Blessed is she whom children love; for the love of a child is more to be called than fortune or fame.

Blessed is she who sings at her work; for music lightens the heaviest load and brightens the dullest chore.

Blessed is she who dusts away doubt and fear and sweeps out the cobwebs of confusion for her faith will triumph over all adversity.

Blessed is she who serves laughter and smiles with every meal; for her buoyancy of spirit is an aid to mental and physical digestion.

Blessed is she who preserves the sanctity of the Christian home; for hers is a sacred trust that crowns her with dignity.


  1. What sweet beatitudes! They remind me that some of the greatest blessings in life are received by the little things we do right in our own homes!

  2. Hi Marie~

    I would like to 'borrow' your *Beatitudes for a Homemaker* if I may, to share at a group we are starting at our church ~ Homekeeping 101. I'll come by again soon ~ looks like we have many things in common!
