Thoughtful Thursday

 
 
"Thank God, O women 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 garniture that place with more splendor than the upholsterer's hand ever kindled." 
 
- T. DeWitt Talmage

A beautiful quote dear Kelly-Anne! I indeed will be experiencing living in a place that needs some tender loving care, but no matter, we are so excited about all the things we are going to do to make it "home". Our Lord is so good and gracious to provide all that we need! Enjoyed your beautiful post today!
