Enough to Share

"If there is any at all, there is enough to share." Elizabeth Mullendore. 

Do you have times of plenty alternating with times of want? Or do you have long seasons of both? Whatever the case, this quote would apply. If you have anything, it can be shared. A lovely thought for your home and for your children.

Jesus in the Home

Amen. Well, let's strive to make it that way.

Hello, Spring

She's celebrating the arrival of Spring. Are you at your house? We have much to be thankful for, as always, and one of those things is for keeping us through a very bitter and harsh winter. But then doesn't that make us appreciate this wonderful season of flowers and bird singing all the more?

I think this is a lovely painting by Frederick Morgan (1856-1927), don't you? Many blessings to you at your home and may you and your children appreciate all of God's gifts.

Busy Pretty Little Mommy

I posted this at the Facebook page today; I just love this lovely depiction of a little girl playing mommy and dress up at the same time. How many of us "big" girls remember those days, but as most of us know, a child's play is work, preparing her (or him) for the future. Seems this little lady is preparing quite well to be a Proverbs 31 woman. Love the artist's use of colors and the sunlight coming in. How pleasant to the eyes.

I hope if you have daughters, you're teaching them well in the ways of coming godly womanhood. Being a good homemaker is part of it, but there are many more facets, such as a kind and compassionate heart for one thing.

Aesop Fables

Don't forget to use these fables in the life of your family. You can apply them so many ways! Today we posted one at the Facebook page, but remember there is always one here to use in your homeschool writing activities or just as a nice little exercise to link onto your family devotions. You can get into some very good discussions using many of these. Use the above Aesop tab to go to the current "Speakable" writing activity.
