‘The Trumpet Sounds’ theme for this year 2013: The year of the family - Improving ‘home’ skills to strengthen family bonding

      ‘The Trumpet Sounds’ theme for this year 2013: The year of the family - Improving ‘home’ skills to strengthen family bonding.

    The family is the most fundamental core of any community/society. The family’s role pivots around the making of a generation, whose lives are moulded as the ‘Potter to the clay’.

    This issue, we will focus a bit on the woman in the family – revealing her unique qualities within this special unit that we call the ‘family’, helping her to find her place as a very special and unique person.

    The Woman in the Home  

    She is special, she can multitask (even under pressure), she is able to cement the family together and care for her family’s needs, particularly when there are family members who are unable to fully care for themselves.  Oh yes, life for the Woman in the Home can be quite challenging, for example, When a Grandmother, unexpectedly, has to take on the full responsibility for caring for her small grandchildren, her whole world changes!!  Or what about a Daughter who is a single Mom, has been recently divorced or, is experiencing financial crisis where she reaches the point of dependence on relatives/friends?  We salute the Sister who is to be caring for her severely ill Uncle or Father, especially when she misses out on social events/recreations and sometimes the opportunity to find ‘Mr Right’.

    What are the challenges that face you at this time, are you feeling pressed down by your circumstances?  Maybe you had made some sacrifices for your family like giving up your job to be the main carer, but now you feel it is time to do something for you.

    There are various ways we can try to balance our duties, ‘prioritise’ is the key. Our goals can be accomplished  successfully  when we list each goal in order of importance and then try breaking down these goals into smaller tasks.  List each task in a logical order and importance for completion and then tackle each task one by one.  For example, you may have your exams, to be successful you will need to work out a realistic study plan and the activities / subjects that you will need to cover for your given subject. You may find it useful to consider how you will stick to the plan, particularly if you become distracted.  Or you may have a mountain of jobs to do around the home like… Preparing the evening meal for the family and helping the children with their homework.

    TO BE CONTINUED....

    Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving… Colossians 4:2 (KJV)

    Be Blessed
