Manners at Home

An inspiring description of homelife sent to me by a reader, written in 1894, can be found here:
http://www.gracegems.org/SERMONS2/Miller_home.htm It has been posted on some other forums and blogs recently. Seems worth getting a copy of for your family.

Thank you for sharing this link.

I especially enjoyed this sentence: Wherever a true wife comes, home is always around her. The stars may be the canopy over her head, the glow-worm in the night's cold grass be the fire at her feet, but home is where she is; and for a noble woman it stretches far around her,—better than houses with ceilings of cedar, or with paintings of the masters, shedding its quiet light for those who else were homeless."

I printed this off & decided to use it in my Bible reflection time this morning - thank you so much I so enjoyed it & have filed it in my faith journal. We have some health issues in my home at the moment and I am to be confirmed into my church the day after tomorrow so I especially needed to read this today - thank you.

That gracegems site with Miller's article also has other articles on home life:

Here is a J.R. Miller site; his home-life article here starts with a Preface:

This is such a beautiful picture of what home should be...I'm a new bride, and I have hung this on our fridge for my husband and I to consult when we need to. :)

Blessings!
