Do you ever feel Invisible?

Watch the video and you will understand what I ask when I say, "Do you feel invisible?". =) What will you build today as you are invisible? Scroll to the bottom of the page and turn the audio player off to hear the video clip. You'll be glad you listened! ;o)

Did you fix breakfast before everyone got up? Set clothes out for the kids to go to school. Make sure homework was checked and backpacks were ready. While everyone is gone and no one is looking will you clean the house, do the laundry, take out the trash, prepare supper for when everyone comes home. What will you sacrifice of yourself today, that no one will see..... but God. We are never invisible to God. He's always there holding us up, supporting us, and watching as we build our families. Take pride in your work ladies. Do a good work that He will be proud of you for. We don't do the things we do for our own glory or for others to say thank you (even though it feels incredibly awesome when it's noticed and appreciated), we do it for HIM.

I love Proverbs 31 and want to strive daily to become a Proverbs woman. I want to train my daughter to become a Proverbs woman. It makes my heart happy to know one of her favorite verses is Proverbs 31:30... Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.

The invisible things we do are all about becoming a Proverbs woman. My new Bible study I'm beginning with friends is 'Becoming A Woman Who Pleases God'. I want to make sure that everything I do is pleasing to Him. I know at times I fail miserably but I pray when I start my day that He is with me and guides my steps as I go about my business of being a mom, wife and business woman. Being INVISIBLE. =) You can find more of Nicole Johnson's inspirational videos HERE or visit her website HERE.

Proverbs 31:10-31

10 A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.

11 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.

12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.

13 She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.

14 She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.

15 She gets up while it is still dark;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her servant girls.

16 She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.

17 She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.

18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.

19 In her hand she holds the distaff
and grasps the spindle with her fingers.

20 She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.

21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.

22 She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.

23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.

24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.

25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.

26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.

28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:

29 "Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all."

30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

31 Give her the reward she has earned,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
