Her Job in the Kingdom of God

Ever feel like what you do all day - the laundry, wiping noses, and scrubbing floors - doesn't really count?
Her Job in the Kingdom of God
By Tina Fehr
She draws strength from God’s living Water and she glorifies God.

She takes many moments to pray and she glorifies God.

She cooks and bakes and presents on tables for dozens and she glorifies God.

She opens her mouth to bring forth songs and kind words and she glorifies God.

She flies across ocean waters or crosses a street corner to tell about Jesus and she glorifies God.

She dances her fingers across keys or strings, inspiring melodies filling the room and she glorifies God.

She washes and scrubs and the clothes come out crisp and clean and she glorifies God.

She teaches with patience, love, and kindness and she glorifies God.

She presses black squares with letters and brings forth encouragements and she glorifies God.

She creates and makes and gives a gift and she glorifies God.

She places a flower here and a sprig there and the occasion is delightful to the eyes and she glorifies God.

She helps her darling husband and she glorifies God.

She takes a small hand in hers and she glorifies God.

She knows just what to buy and where and when and she glorifies God.

She cuts and arranges in jars and in winter they eat the fruits thereof and she glorifies God.

She rubs with a cloth and swishes with long handles and the places gleam and she glorifies God.

She digs a small hole and puts in something smaller yet;
She waters and watches it grow and she glorifies God.

She cuddles and rocks and guides little ones and she glorifies God.

She sheds a tear for some soul and she glorifies God.

She takes fabric, cuts it into various size pieces, and sews it into one piece again and she glorifies God.

She wears a smile and the beautiful garment of praise and she glorifies God.

She makes big ideas little for young minds and she glorifies God.

She bandages wounds and encourages the brokenhearted and she glorifies God.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which is in heaven.  Matthew 5:16

I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart:
and I will glorify thy name for evermore. Psalm 86:12

 Tina and her husband Jake live in southwestern Ontario, Canada. She is Teacher-mom to their five children. She enjoys all aspects of homemaking (yes, even cooking), teaching, reading, and writing. Her book Daddy on the Mend tells the true story of God's love and care for them when Jake broke his leg.
