Home as a Haven-June 30, 2008

Today's Post from Biblical Womanhood tackles bathrooms and a verse to meditate on while making our homes a haven.

For my reading today, I am meditating on Deuteronomy 6:7. I wanted to know what and how I am supposed to teach my child the things of the Lord. Here is what I learned:

1) To " teach them diligently" means "to implant by repeated statement or admonition; teach persistently and earnestly " or "to cause to accept a belief or idea through repetition" (Webster's Dictionary). We are to repeat the words of the Lord constantly to our children, not just once a day or a week but consistently throughout our day.

2) Talking can include speaking, conversing, commanding, warning, and singing. There are so many ways we can teach our children the word, and I love that singing is included there.

Just this one verse was enough for this mother to ponder today.


Now, on to the bathrooms.

First, I have a confession to make; I love cleaning bathrooms. I know I am probably one of only two or three out there that do but there it is. But sometimes I don't have time to do it. There are other things and people demanding my time. So to save time between major cleanings, after my morning shower, I pick up all the things on the counter that have been left out since the morning before. Then I take a wipe (I like the Clorox wipes) and wipe down the sink and toilet. Finally, I check the trash, making sure that all the trash is picked up (it doesn't always make it to the trash can) and there is no "diaper odor" trying to escape and kill the family. Now my bathroom is clean and ready for a day's use!

Blessings to you all and have a great day making your home a haven too!

You can come and clean my bathroom if you would like! :)

Really, that is wonderful. I need to make more of an effort in that area.
