I gaze upon an unmade bed And see a tousled curly head With sparkling eyes and tiny hands That hold a mountain of demands And then I look around to see Ten messes staring back at me. I’m tempted to sit down and cry But I’ll wait until the towels dry. I wander on from room to room With mop and rag and corn-husk broom And finish just in time to find The dishes still a day behind. I stand beside the kitchen sink And feel a need to stop and think. I wonder why I labor so And wish that I could somehow know. I feel another presence there And smooth my husband’s tangled hair; I breathe a sigh from deep within And match his soft good-morning grin. And slowly I begin to see The Father’s hand stretched out to me, And notice in my loved-ones’ eyes The simple truth to all the whys. I have a Christian home to keep That’s more than meals and floors to sweep; More than laundry, tubs, and walls, More than rugs and tidy halls. Making home a haven for My family is not a chore, For they will see the Father’s love In hands adorned with latex gloves. I can show His heart to them And turn their tender hearts to Him. This home will shield us from the storm As I keep the homefire’s embers warm.
