There you have it! Some great messages.

And now one from me!

Are you someone working towards being a Proverbs 31 Woman?

The Christmas period puts so much stress on our time and finances – as if we need that extra stress! Remember in verse 15 of this chapter is the mention of ‘servant girls’. The P31 Woman was not alone in her work and neither should you be. Encourage family members (no matter what age) to assist in the home and in the preparations for this coming season to celebrate the birth of our Lord. Doesn’t matter if it’s just setting a table, putting gifts under the tree, hanging baubles on the lower branches or putting stamps on envelopes to post cards. Whatever it is, don’t succumb to the temptation to do it all yourself – it might not quite be done the way you do it, but does that really matter? It’s the love that goes into it that matters and children love to help – especially if they are given praise and hugs afterwards. They’ll grow up wanting to continue to help and make your life at home an easier load to bear.

And think carefully about the money you’re spending – it’s so easy to spend on impulse, particularly at this time of year.  We all get caught up in the excitement of this season but also what has commonly been called ‘consumerism’ as well.  Seek God for wise counsel on what you should be doing and remember to thank Him also.

I hope you enjoyed these carnival entries!

    Kathie,

    You have touched on a subject that most people shy away from out of fear… Thank you! WE need this reminder. We need to realize that we can’t justify by saying that we are “giving” because if we truly consider our heart then we might see that we give out of what we get in return meaning, praise, elaborate thank yous, adoration and even envy. These are not reasons to give.

    Great post!

    This is so perfect. I was just writing on my homestead blog that very thing. That we do not need to do it all. We should delegate. http://www.homesteadblogger.com/Christin/

    Excellent post. Thank you for hosting! 🙂

    Amy – I’m so sorry I missed this carnival! I was ready with a post all thought out in my head but then I couldn’t find my way back to this post. But I’ll mark it this time and get a post up for next week. Wonderful thoughts to share with each other! Nina
