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."
We don't shoot for perfection here...more of a shabby chic, rugged beauty! ;)
I filled in the log planter that Chris made me and I talked about in my LAST post...
I sat out on our front porch this morning reading my bible. It was glorious...a comfy temperature, a nice breeze and the fragrance in the air was wonderful! Oh, the loveliness of spring! On days like this, I truly believe it was only by the grace of God we all made it through the long, snowy winter! ;)
Today, we honor those who have fought and served our country so we can have the freedoms we do. To you and your families.....*thank-you* for your service. Because of you, I can worship the true and living God without persecution. I can plant flowers and enjoy my home. I can live in peace and safety. My family is so grateful.
I pray your Memorial Day is full of remembrance, gratitude, family, friends, food and flowers!
