Thoughtful Thursday




The man is the brace and ceiling of his house,
He is the straight walls rising from the earth,
The woman is the golden glow of lamps,
The firelight on a hearth.

~ Emery Petho

“The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.” 

~ Proverbs 14:1

“…Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.”

~ Titus 2:4-5

Blessings on your Thursday, sweet friends!  
Oh!  And look out for a special...giveaway coming this Sunday!

 
 ~ Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labour in vain…  Psalm 127:1 ~

What a precious painting, my friend! The children look so happy and the mother looks so calm and at peace :)

The quote and Scripture were a joy to read and a blessing to this ol' heart of mine. I really liked the quote was an extra blessing as I have not read it before.

May you have a beautiful weekend, sweet friend! Love to you!
