Those of you who have been here know the drill, those of you who do –not, pay attention, please.

“Ladies, “listen up”!

Tomorrow, there will be some new changes, here in the woman’s home. Starting with the chores, some of you will be responsible for more than one chore, on the clean-up sheet. (COLOSSIANS 3:23-24) NIV whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for man, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

Lisa and Amber you are kitchen clean-up, “Rosy, bathrooms, “Marry, living room, “Teresa, sweep &mop.

“Ladies”! “Listen up for your name; these are the extra duties that will be assigned to a few of you. We will rotate these every week according to the girls that come in and go out.

You will be given 30 minutes of free time, 7:30 to 8:00.

8:00 o’ clock classes will begin; all ladies will be participating in the following programs “The battle field of the mind” “Drug and Alcohol Classes” (if assigned) “Domestic Violence” and “GED Classes”.

This was a very interesting way to present the topic. Nicely done. God bless~

This is definitely a different take on the topic than other stories this week. You certainly were spot on the topic. You show how important it is to work together and even showed in the Bible where God encourages us to work together and have a proper attitude.

There were some punctuation errors that made it difficult to follow at times, especially with quotation marks.A good idea is to include some action and show the reader the personalities of the characters as they react to their assigned chores. That will help to draw the reader in.

I do think you picked some lovely scripture to go along with your idea. They seem to go along nicely with your intended message. Keep writing the words God places on your heart.
