the beauty of serving Today, it is my privilage to present eleven stellar posts on the beauty of serving for the Carnival of Beauty. Iris at Eph2810 had to evaluate her service to God last winter, after getting sick. Was her service to be in 'public' or her own four walls? Read her thoughts regarding service in this week's entry "Where do you Serve Him?" Blair from Scribblings by Blair loves being a homemaker but finds that she doesn't quite enjoy the aspect of cooking. In this post she sets out to discover a new outlook as well as a new method for the task at hand. Check out her post: "Hey Cookie, that's mighty fine grub!" Sarah's Daughter, Natalija, describes how God changed her outlook on housework and service to her family over the years in "Who am I serving?" Carmen of Full Contact Christ Centric Living portrays the Beauty of Service in her post “It’s Right!” She visits the question, “Should young men and women risk their lives to fight a questionable war in foreign lands?” Ellen from MzEllen & Co. finds that who you are serving is more important than how you are serving in "How Do You Serve? WHO do you serve?" In "Serving a Need" at "Of Christian Women", Carrie shares the importance of considering the need when serving. God created us to glorify Him. God wants us to serve others. When does our service to others glorify Him? When does it not? At She Lives, Carol asks these questions and offers a challenge. Are you willing to take her up on it as She Serves. In her post, "No More Lemony Looks For Me," Heather from Mom 2 Mom Connection wants to offer her positive attitude as a gift of service to Christ. By choosing to dwell on uplifting thoughts instead of negative, she hopes to bring more joy into her life and the lives of others around her. A wife fulfills her God-given purpose with service to her husband, which blesses them both. Find out how by reading Mrs. Happy Housewife's post The Beauty of Service. The beauty of serving is found as we lose ourselves in Christ and service in His grace. It is seen on the faces of those who have been served that Christ be glorified. Come and see The Beauty of Serving in Christ on Patricia's Pollywog Creek Porch. There are so many things Amanda, who is following an unknown path, says she could write about serving and its beauty. However, for the Carnival chose to write about one of the most memorable moments in her life when she was served. Read the story: washing feet. In the next two weeks the Carnival of Beauty will be: January 31 - Gentleness - hosted by Iris (eph2810) February 7 - Contentment - hosted by Bethany (A Picturesque Life) If you didn't join us this week, please come join us as we reflect on the beauty of Christ in our writing in the coming weeks.
