BLESSED is she whose daily tasks are a labor of love,
for her willing hands and happy heart translate duty into privilege,
and her labor becomes a service to God.
BLESSED is she who opens the door to welcome both stranger and friends,
for gracious hospitality is a test of brotherly love.
BLESSED is she who mends toys and broken hearts,
for her understanding is a balm to humanity.
BLESSED is she who cleans and scrubs,
for well she knows that cleanliness is one expression of godliness.
BLESSED is she whom children love,
for the love of a child is more to be valued than fortune or fame.
BLESSED is she who sings while she works,
for music lightens the heaviest load and brightens the dullest chore.
BLESSED is she who dusts away doubt and fear and sweeps out the cobwebs of confusions,
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 Christian home,
for hers is a sacred trust that crowns her with dignity.
