For every house is built by someone,

but the builder of all things is God.

Hebrews 3:4

Thursday, November 5, 2009

Every true wife makes her husband's interests her own.  While he lives for her, carrying her image in his heart and toiling for her all the days, she thinks only of what will do him good.  When burdens press upon him she tries to lighten them by sympathy, by cheer, by the inspiration of love.  She enters with zest and enthusiasm into all his plans.  She is never a weight to drag him down, she is strength in his heart to help him ever to do nobler and better things.

J.R. Miller

Love this quote! Well done Christa ~ You are a blessing to me!

I just stopped by to let you know I have taken my sewing pictures and hope to get those off to you tomorrow...please don't go ahead without my contribution...I am looking forward to participating! Time is a bit restricted these days as home is my first calling...but I am still "in" on the project! :)

Have a wonderful day!

I am going to copy this over to my blog because it so good! I will let all know where I found it.
This attitude towards my husband has been so in my heart lately.

Hi Camille,
Don't worry about the pictures. I still have to write the post and put it all together.
I understand about home being your first calling so I will gladly wait.

Hi Hip Chick,
This is always on my heart and I'm far from perfect at this. I just pray the Lord will change me to become more like this.
Thank you for sharing it with others.

Oh, I like that! Thank you for sharing. Have you read that book? I have not, but it looks interesting.

Hi Nadine,
I'm reading it right now. It was actually renamed "The Family" and it can be purchased from Vision Forum.
