He tends His flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries them close to His heart; He gently leads those that have young. ~Isaiah 40:11
"The ordinary acts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest. " ~ Thomas Moore
"Thank goodness I was never sent to school; it would have rubbed off some of the originality." ~ Beatrix Potter
"The homemaker has the ultimate career. All other careers exist for one purpose only - and that is to support the ultimate career. " ~ C.S. Lewis "The secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life, and in elevating them to art." ~William Morris
"I have no faith in that woman who talks of grace and glory abroad, and uses no soap and water at home. Let the buttons be on the shirts, let the children's socks be mended, let the roast mutton be done to a turn, let the house be as neat as a new pin, and the home be as happy as home can be."
Okay...this may seem like a truly ridiculous post, but I can't help but share my excitement! My blog has hit *one million* page views (today)!! Woohoo! Of course, in the scheme of life, that is truly unimportant...but I just get joy out of the little things in life!
It is truly wonderful if people have come to visit here and found a lovely, quiet place to visit. I pray they have seen the truth of Christ portrayed from my heart and life. The gospel is a truly beautiful thing and I am thrilled to know that so many have had access to it in one way or another through my blog. I like the old-fashioned things of life....but this internet thing is pretty great when it can spread Christ over miles and miles! :)
Thank you, friends, for stopping by and visiting me. I appreciate all of you...even if I am only familiar with you by username/name and not by picture. :) If you comment here (or even if you are a visitor who doesn't comment) I would LOVE to get to know you better. Would you please leave a note of hello in the comments (or even through email: thecountryblossom at hotmail.com)? A picture for those who don't have one on their blog or profile would be amazing too (you can send it through email...you don't have to leave a comment with your pic if you don't want to....or you don't have to leave a picture at all...but I would love to know what YOU look like!).
Thanks again for helping me to spread Christ, family, home and more across the miles! :)
