Encouragement Found In A Post

I recently read a post on a fellow bloggers blog and she had a guest writer named Jasmine Bauchman, write a post that was fantastic.  The title of the post was "The World Is Watching You".

Here is an excerpt of the article to give you an idea of what it is about.

"If you choose to train to become a homemaker -if you choose to live at home with your parents and serve your family until you become a wife and mother -if you live under the jurisdiction of your parents until you are given in marriage to a godly young man to whom you choose to submit... And especially if you do all of this because of biblical precedent and precept...

Expect some stones to fly in your direction..........
.......don't lose heart. You are different -you are counter-cultural -you are purposeful -"
I really enjoyed the post as it hit home in so many different areas.  Sometimes it can be so easy to be a "Stay-At-Home-Daughter (SAHD)" and yet other times it can be incredibly difficult.  You love being available to help and serve in the many different areas and situations God has given you, that you wouldn't have been able to experience if you weren't at home during this time in your life. You love being with the people that you love the most in the world and being able to work/serve with them every day.  Then the next day you can be wondering if it is God's will that you stay home when the questions/remarks of other people make you feel guilty for leading a life that is counter cultural and unusual (special).  The wave upon wave of sometimes innocent and sometimes not so innocent comments that are said can make you wonder if it is worth it.
Jasmine's post was exactly what I needed when I read it and I hope that it brings as much encouragement to your heart as it did to mine.  For those of you who are not "SAHD" it is still a neat post if you look at it from a Christian's point of view and read the article as if it was written to Christian's set apart in the world. :] Here is the link to the blog "A Little Space" and here is the link to the post "The World Is Watching You."
Enjoy and be encouraged!
