I have never made a post just to share a song, but I came across this one the other day and I really liked it. This song, Sacred by Caedmon's call, is the first song I have ever heard about the work of being a homemaker and stay at home mom. No matter what you are doing with your life, the purpose and reason for doing it should be to bring glory to God. Being the primary and only caregiver, with the opportunity to personally disciple your children on a full time basis and to train up their hearts, might seem to be an obvious service to the Lord. However wiping noses, preparing dinner, and doing the dishes day in and day out might not. This song is a good reminder of 1 Corinthians 10:31 "So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God."

You can listen to the song here. (Clicking this will take you away from my blog. If you do click it, scroll down on that site to read the lyrics as you listen to the song.)


this house is a good mess
it’s the proof of life
no way would I trade jobs
but it don’t pay overtime

I’ll get to the laundry
I don’t know when
I’m saying a prayer tonight
cause tomorrow it starts again

could it be that everything is sacred?
and all this time
everything I’ve dreamed of
has been right before my eyes

the children are sleeping
but they’re running through my mind
the sun makes them happy
and the music makes them unwind

my cup runneth over
and I worry about the stain
teach me to run to You
like they run to me for every little thing

when I forget to drink from you
I can feel the banks harden
Lord, make me like a stream
to feed the garden

wake up, little sleeper
the Lord, God Almighty
made your Mama keeper
so rise and shine
rise and shine cause

everything is sacred
and all this time
everything I’ve dreamed of
has been right before my eyes

Happy Valentine's Day

If all someone knows about me is the life and death of my Savior, and the reputation of my Godly husband, then I am pleased.

I am blessed to be the daughter of the Savior, and honored to bear my husband's name.

Lord, thank you for enabling us to know love, in that you loved us first. For being the example of selfless, unconditional love, and of sacrifice. Thank you for giving me the love and devotion of a husband who strives to love me like You do. I pray that I willingly, humbly, and wholeheartedly submit to my husband, as to the Lord.

Happy Valentine's Day! I love you, Reed.
