Creating Beauty at Home

Garden Corner

Morning has come and things are quiet. I will make my list of adventures in just a few minutes. I will also plan to create some beauty here at home and also in my heart.

I will listen to old gospel music, like Precious Memories by J.D. Sumner. Then I will walk around and straighten decorative pillows, adjust the books on the table, and gently pull back the curtains. These will be small acts of beauty.

I will drink hot tea from a pretty china cup while I do my Prentiss Study. I will delight in pleasant, happy thoughts.

When the excitement of the day begins and the children are loud and active, I will remember my morning. I will remember I need to make that extra effort to create beauty here at home.

Thank you for further teaching me to appreciate the small acts of beauty for what they are...just that...small acts of beauty! What a lovely way to think of the little things that we do around our home. God bless you, Mrs. White! Have a beautiful and blessed day. You are much loved and appreciated!
