Yesterday, I posted this quote on facebook:
The woman who makes a sweet, beautiful home,
filling it with love and prayer and purity,
is doing something better than anything else
her hands could find to do beneath the skies.
On pinterest, I have a board entitled, "the dream home..." -- click HERE to view it. Of course, these are beautiful pictures of homes and rooms. But, really, the ultimate dream home (on this earth) should look something like this:
Happy the home when God is there,
and love fills every breast;
when one their wish, and one their prayer
and one their heavenly rest.
Happy the home where Jesus' name
is sweet to every ear;
where children early speak his fame
and parents hold him dear.
Happy the home where prayer is heard,
and praise is wont to rise,
where parents love the sacred Word
and all its wisdom prize.
Lord, let us in our homes agree
this blessed peace to gain;
unite our hearts in love to thee,
and love to all will reign.
Henry Ware, Jr. (1794-1843)
