Entrusting to Our Care ~

"Homemaking—being a full-time wife and mother—is not a destructive drought of usefulness but an overflowing oasis of opportunity;

it is not a dreary cell to contain one’s talents and skills but a brilliant catalyst to channel creativity and energies into meaningful work;

it is not a rope for binding one’s productivity in the marketplace, but reins for guiding one’s posterity in the home;

it is not oppressive restraint of intellectual prowess for the community, but a release of wise instruction to your own household;

 it is not the bitter assignment of inferiority to your person, but the bright assurance of the ingenuity of God’s plan for the complementarity of the sexes, especially as worked out in God’s plan for marriage;

it is neither limitation of gifts available nor stinginess in distributing the benefits of those gifts,

 but rather the multiplication of a mother’s legacy to the generations to come and the generous bestowal of all God meant a mother to give to those He entrusted to her care.”
