The Younger Wives
These lovely smooth hands adorned with gorgeous diamond wedding rings belong to the new generation of wives in our family. The younger wives! The ones that have recently married, and all currently under 30 years old.
New wives and homemakers. Current mommies and future mommies! This is the generation that has just begun a daily routine of dishes, laundry, floors, windows, cooking, nurturing, understanding, unselfishness, etc., etc., etc. The list is just too long to go on. The most important thing of all though is serving God! If God is not first, ahead of everything, every part of life is always so much more difficult.
These lovely hands will be cooking a lot of meals with love for the rest of their lives. They are the ones that had better get that Thanksgiving dressing recipe perfected by the time it's their turn to play hostess in years to come. They are the ones that are currently perfecting recipes of new and old, finding out from their husbands what's good and what NEVER to cook again.
We've all been there.
So here they are again, the hands that are currently smooth and young, wearing diamond rings as a symbol that they have become wives, homemakers, moms and future moms. I hope and pray they NEVER take one second for granted.
I know these three lovely young ladies. I know they're up to the challenge. I know that they are willing to make all the sacrifices that a wife and mother has to make. So tie on those aprons and give it all you've got girls!
DON'T FORGET TO ALWAYS PUT GOD FIRST!
