"The beauty of the house is order. The blessing of the house is contentment. The glory of the house is hospitality. The crown of the house is godliness." author unknown
I have the above quote written on a chalkboard and hanging in a prominent place in my kitchen. I need to be reminded that what we are building here in our home is of utmost importance.
I'm the happy wife to Tom, my wonderful husband of thirty years, mother to our thirteen wonderful children, also known as, A Baker's Dozen, and a daughter of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Our children are educated at home,life is never dull, I'm blessed, sometimes overwhelmed, and the laundry is never done. There's always the next meal to be prepared, food to be acquired or planted or harvested, a child to be read to, comforted, taught, or hugged, a cow to be milked and chickens to be fed. Did I already say that life is never dull?
I/we hope those (women) who visit here will be inspired to joyfully embrace faith, family, motherhood, all aspects of homemaking, and being a keeper of the home.
Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchmen waketh but in vain. Psalm 127:1
