“He drew a circle that shut me out-
Heretic , rebel, a thing to flout.
But love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle and took him In !
From the poem " Outwitted”
I think these scriptures can be taught to your children to teach them to love the family! They teach a warmheartedness; a weeping-with-those-who-weep and a rejoicing with those who rejoice.
Marks of the True Christian - A 13-Step Study
Rom 12:9 Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
Rom 12:10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
Rom 12:11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
Rom 12:12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
Rom 12:13 Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.
Rom 12:14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
Rom 12:15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
Rom 12:16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.
Rom 12:17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
Rom 12:18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
Rom 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
Rom 12:20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
Rom 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

To the young girls graduating:
Take it from someone who went the career route, you will regret it when you turn 60 and have no family ties or children to turn to. You will not change the world one bit by a career or by sitting in an office 10 hours a day staring at a computer. Your life will speed by so quickly that you can't imagine it possible. Don't waste it on a "job." The job will one day go away and you will have the realization that it was wasted time. There are no "rewards" in slaving away your life for a corporation that won't even remember your name.
You can make all the difference in the world by being the keeper of a wonderful home. Your children and family will be your comfort. If you are curious about the world, take some time and travel and see it, and then settle down in a place you love. The most important things in life are the little things, the daily joys, and the happiness of a family that loves you. The rest of it is just a waste. God put us here for a purpose. Please think hard about your choices before you make them and don't let other people decide your future for you.
Lady Lydia has designed this blog for young women to learn about becoming homekeepers. Take the time to read through the articles and decide for yourself.
The world can become a better place one home at a time.
Thank you for this post and many thanks to readers comments. I am a product of a mom who worked outside of the home. We lived in a messy, cluttered place. I followed suit, went off to college to find a career, because being taught by the leaders of the feminist movement that's what I was suppose to do. Fortunately, I married a man who was raised with a stay at home mom. I tried to balance home and work and made some very good money, but failed in "home life" I was always stressed and mean. One day, I was listening to a radio show that encouraged women to stay home. It made so much sense that I use the talents I was using out in the world at home instead. It was the best decision we've ever made. I homeschooled the children and gave them a nice neat home to live in. Everyone is happier....and I am truly blessed to have the best job. My husband loves that I take care of him and give him special atte

Have you ever stopped to wonder what this life is all about
Why you're here and where you're going when your lease on life runs out?
Maybe you've been far to busy, trying hard to reach your goal;
Would you let me ask you kindly, have you thought about your soul?
You may reach the highest portals, and your dreams may all come true;
Wealth and fame may be your portion, and success may shine on you.
All your friends may sing your praises, not a care on you may roll;
What about the great tomorrow -- have you thought about your soul?
Don't forget your days are numbered though you may be riding high;
But like all of us poor mortals, someday you'll just up and die.
Your success and fame and glory won't be worth the bell you toll;
Let me ask you just one question, have you thought about your soul?
If you never thought it over, spend a little time today;
There is nothing more important that will ever come your way,
Than the joys of sins forgiven, and to know that you have been made whole;
In the name of Christ the Savior, have you thought about your soul?
Being home is a wonderful freedom, but we can easily fill up the time with busy-ness, forgetting to set aside time for prayer. Homemakers sometimes can feel they are carrying a great deal of responsibility all by themselves. There is not much reinforcement or encouragement for this solemn duty. When there is so much to do, it is important to pray. Prayer is faster than any other communication. Do not let anything make you feel too unworthy to pray.
