Somewhere along the way in the last 10 years we seem to have looked upon the title of Homemaker as a worthless position to hold. Women believe that being a homemaker makes us less than and weak. Women hold onto the incessant need to be equal to men and show strength and power as a Woman. Somewhere along the way we have forgotten and lost the reality of the dignity there is in being the person that creates the home and what that means.
Proverbs 14:1-3 Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands. 2He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the LORD: but he that is perverse in his ways despiseth him. 3In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them
The Homemaker holds more power than anyone. They hold the key that makes a house a home, the hand the keeps the calm, the focus, and the structure present in the home. They are the person that provides the comfort, the nurturing, and the discipline in the home. They are what prevents the very society that is occurring today.
How often did you hear of school shootings when we were kids and our moms stayed home and cared for our home and us? How often did you hear of childhood suicides, childhood drug overdoses and children being in fear at school?
Sure, childhood bullies existed, and some were afraid to face them but mostly we stood up to our bullies and learned to fight our own battles and be strong and courageous and we found the ability to hold our own in this world.
A homemaker’s job is more than just housework and cooking meals, it is providing your child with a structured life and someone consistently there to guide them and focus on their behaviors, answer their questions, and comfort their pains and communicate their necessities and give them the answers they seek. A homemaker makes the home a warm, loving, nurturing place to come home to and to be a part of.
Parents are so busy these days, both working 40 plus hours a week just to have more than the neighbor has that they have no time to focus on what their children are doing. Kids are home playing video games, shoving garbage down their throats, and coming up with their own warped ways to solve their problems, because they are angry not only at the bullies but at the entire world and they have no one at home to vent to and they feel neglected and forgotten because mom and dad are too tired to care.
Children have too much time alone these days and not enough structure and no one to see over their behaviors and they are coming home to a house, four walls, possibly very nice interior, and everything they could ever want in materialistic needs but nothing that truly matters in emotional needs.
Women, we are powerful, we have always been powerful, the men may have gone to work to provide financially for us back then but the women they went to work every day of the week, making a true home for all of us and keep us all happy and feeling loved and comforted and full in life. Women were the true warriors and men needed that comfort just as much as the children did.
We have been so blinded by wanting to be equal to men that we did not even see that we were so much greater and men, real men, knew that.
So, we don’t need to take away guns, we don’t need to take away video games, even though I believe the violent ones are not necessary, we don’t need to place security guards in our schools, and we do not need to provide safety zones.
We need to slow down our lives, bring back our moms, stop trying to live on top of the world and start living back in it. We need to make our houses homes again and give our children a focused, nurturing, and loving environment again. We all always claimed to hate all the focus and discipline but none of us were involved in school shootings.
None of us had enough alone time to destroy ourselves or others and all of us while hating being told what to do, felt very loved and grew up stronger for it. Our parents made us believe in ourselves so much that we found a strength in ourselves to believe we could achieve anything, and we became so strong that we lost our way and our children our paying for that now.
We let video games and cell phones baby sit them, we leave them home alone at younger ages and we are too tired to give them the focus the truly need to keep them out of trouble. We are not there to hear about their troubles, and they stop trying to share, keep it to themselves until they lose control and hurt themselves or hurt others.
This world needs homemakers again. We need to go back to a slower pace and learn to enjoy life and let our children enjoy being children, let them come home to warm cookies fresh from the oven, hot cocoa on a cold day and the loving arms of their mothers or fathers and the warm smiles to greet them after a long day at school. We need to be their counselors and their support system, not the schools, the teachers, and the electronics. We need to be their nurses and nurturers, not from a virtual call but right at their bedside.
This is what is missing folks. Its time we bring it back, before we lose more children and before we lose our world to all the evil that is surrounding it these days. We need to stop trying to have the latest and greatest and go back to when people had backbones and fought for what was right for our lives not what was easiest and what was given to us, but what was morally right. That is what gave us all power, that is what made us all equal. We had faith in each other, faith in the lord and faith in country and our leaders.
We lived by the Creedence that you get respect when you have earned it and nothing worth getting comes for free. We were taught you have to work hard to get what you want in life, and nothing feels greater that earning the things you come to possess. God created us all equal, hate is a bad word, and you never hate anyone or anything, you can dislike it but never hate.
Let’s go back to this world people, lets find happiness in our lives again, let’s give the next generation a better start and give them backbones again and a home that is full of love, focus, discipline, and nurture. Let’s bring the homemaker back.
Let’s fight back towards our government, take back our country, bring down the costs of things, so two incomes are not necessary to live and let our children be children again and have a warm set of arms to come home to again.
Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
