Oh and a quote before signing off from my morning reading taken from Each For The Other by Bryan Chapell (marital book that our friends, the Gravinos', gave us). It's taken under the glory of a Christian wife section:
"God wants us to base our dignity on His eternal regard not our own personal gain. Contrary to popular opinion, woman was not created for her own fulfillment. She was created to be a helper and nurturer. Now that is not an easy assignment to accept. We tend to bristle and think, there must be something more significant than that! What homemaker hasn't found herself asking, after the fiftieth load of laundry in a week or when facing yet another sink full of dirty dishes, 'is there anything significant about what I'm doing here?' yet in God's eyes, nothing is more significant than servanthood. The path to genuine greatness lies in serving. Grasping for power or recognition is natural. Servanthood is supernatural. So many women are missing out on the supernatural today because they are caught up in the "search for significance." Ironically, the more they search for it, the less satisfied they feel. Why? Significance is found in giving your life away, not in selfishly trying to find personal happiness. Heaven is reflected in her focus on others."
