Motivation Monday

"Thank God, O woman, for the quietude of your home, and that you are queen in it. Men come at eventide to the home; but all day long you are there beautifying it, sanctifying it, adorning it, blessing it. Better be there than wear a queen's coronet. Better be there than carry the purse of a princess. It may be a very humble home. There may be no carpet on the floor. There may be no pictures on the wall. There may be no silks in the wardrobe; but, by your faith in God, and your cheerful demeanor, you may garnish that place with more splendor than the upholsterer's hand ever kindled." (T. De Witt Talmage)

I got this off another blog but don't know how to put the link here-I'm still learning!

I guess I can't consider myself a SAHM because I do work 30 hours a week at my church but I so love this this quote. It still applies to ALL Moms. Have you ever heard "the woman is the thermostat of the home"? Boy, is that true. Be encouraged are important.

I wouldn't have it any other way - although there are some days I think otherwise! Love your new blog. And, by the way, the kids' picture is too sweet!
