The Homemaker's Need to Create
A homemaker's job is not all cooking, cleaning, and child-training. Do you ever take the time to create something? It could be creating a centerpiece, painting a picture, sewing some pretty clothes or decorative items, making a homemade card...the list goes on and on. When we have a chance on an outing, I like to go with a daughter or two to Hobby Lobby or Michael's and just browse. If you are not a "creative person", just visiting one of these stores will give you many ideas for making something with your own hands to either keep for your own home and enjoyment, or to give away as a gift.
I enjoy cross-stitching, though I haven't gotten to pursue this craft for many years; painting, drawing, and playing the piano. I also have an interest in many other areas that I would like to someday learn. It is also enjoyable to pursue creative interests with your children.
Just a couple of days ago when we were outside enjoying God's creation, I made this little sketch. Please note, it is just a sketch, so it is not very wonderful or outstanding. If you would like to see some of my other artwork, you may do so here.
So what do you create? Remember it is often helpful for a much-needed break.
