BEATITUDES FOR A HOUSEWIFE

“Blessed is she whose daily tasks are a labour of love; for her willing hands and happy heart translate duty into privilege, and her labour becomes a service to God and all mankind.

‘Blessed is she who opens the door to welcome both stranger and well- loved friend; for gracious hospitality is a test of brotherly love.

“Blessed is she who mends stockings and toys and broken hearts; for her understanding is a balm to humanity.

“Blessed is she who scours and scrubs; for well she knows that cleanliness is one expression of godliness.

“Blessed is she whom children love;for the love of children is to be valued than fortune of fame.

“Blessed is she who sings at her work;for music lights the heaviest load and brightens the dullest chore.

“Blessed is she who dusts away doubt and fear and sweeps out the cobwebs of confusion; for her faith will triumph over all adversity.

‘Blessed is she who serves laughter and smiles with every meal; for her buoyancy of spirit is an aid to mental and physical digestion.

“Blessed is she who preserves the sanctity of the home; for hers is a sacred trust that crowns her with dignity”.

– MARY MAY OESCH

COMMENT;

These thoughts were taken from ”POEMS THAT TOUCH THE HEART a collection of inspirational poems by A.L. ALEXANDER, an American broad caster  who blazed a trail in spontaneous, unrehearsed human interest programmes. These poems that brought comfort and encouragement  to millions of readers were first printed in April, 1941. they were so popular that up to 1955, there were 25 reprints. then from 1956 to 1963 there were 6 printings of a New Enlarged Edition.  This book iwas printed in the United States of America, and because of its content should be read  in every home, here and abroad as it helps to promote love and compassion and all the other virtues.
