A Morning Visit

One of my favorite, vintage books.  {Do you see the bookmark? It is an empty m and m wrapper.}

 I am slowly feeling better.  But I will have several Jane Austen days before I am ready for normal activity.  Last night, I did a little sewing and finished an apron. I plan to cut some new material this morning. 

I am going to read passages from Beautiful for Thee, which was published in 1978. It is a charming pink book full of godly messages for wives and mothers. Each chapter is a transcript from a speaker at an event that was hosted by The Sword of the Lord publishers.  I love the vintage photographs of each speaker, and the brief description of who they were.

I am looking forward to a restful day by the fire. I will not care that chores are not being done, but I will do my best to make things look pleasant.

While my routines and duties
are curtailed due to broken bones,
I am reminded of and grateful for this:
The Lord uses physical needs and means
to teach me spiritual truths.

Praying refreshment & healing for you there
by the home fires.

I have recently found your blog and all I can say is WOW. You have really inspired me to be a much better homemaker, Don't tell anyone but I can be a bit sloppy. Usually from my baking, too bad I don't enjoy cleaning as much. I have prayed for you health.

You have realized the first step, that you have an issue. Now take a stand and overcome it. You can do it. Where there is a will there is a way.

Happy Pink Saturday! And, wow! Were you here while I lived in Stowe? I am amazed that anyone in Vermont dares to speak of God, and am so relieved to find someone there who can. I do hope you are feeling better soon. I imagine it is just freezing outside.
