The Sewing Hour

Lady Sewing

There is a time, in a homemaker's day, called The Sewing Hour. It is when she sits quietly in the parlor and works on the sewing. Perhaps she is mending the family wardrobe? Or maybe she is hand-sewing a hem on a new garment? I am often working on an apron. There was a time when I would crochet a baby afghan, or sew a toddler quilt while praying or singing hymns.  This is a precious time of quiet devotion.

I urge you, dear ones, to use this time to listen to a godly, inspiring, convicting sermon like this one:

The Centrality of the Home by Voddie Baucham

When the hour has past, you will put down your sewing and your heart will be full. Even though you may hold back tears (because of the sermon), you will get up and minister to your family!

A very good sermon. I agree. Have a wonderful Mothers Day!

Sewing is something I look forward to doing every evening. Thank you for the link to this VB sermon. Having a listen right now as I stitch a quilt for my little girl. Happy Mothers Day to you Mrs. White.

What an inspiring post! Sadly, I don't sew....but this has convicted me to pray and listen to the Lord more when I do my crafts and scrapbooking each night. Thank you for this!

Also, I am interested in becoming a Fit Mommy! Will be linking up on Friday with you:)
