Housework is holy work

Housework is holy work. It's all right to take time to do it. The world can wait.

 This is what I heard the Lord say in my spirit this morning. 

I don't know about you but I'd rather do anything else, even though I've read it a thousand times: She looketh well to the ways of her household and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed. 
Proverbs 31 again. 

Oswald Chambers even talks about serving God in drudgery. But the world has preached that housework is boring and inferior. 

So this word from the Holy Spirit was encouraging to me--as I was reviewing some videos to prepare to do something out of the house and teach a class on prayer which I'm very excited about. 

He reminded me I can do both. Balance! Balance.
