Adding Comfort to the Home

Another Beautiful Painting by Susan Rios

This painting just arrived in Susan's regular email newsletter and I could not wait to share it. I will be adding a special sewing or paper project to this post as soon as I can. Until then remember to dress up to greet God's beautiful creation, and be sure to have a cup of hot tea served in your best tea set.

Dear Lady Lydia, I thought this article will be insightful and inspiring to recommend to your readers, especially young ladies who may have been misled by the feminist thinking, that women can totally conquer both the male and female domain, and still have it all in perfect balance.

Written by a high profile US government career lady who decided to prioritise nurturing her family over a career.

Enjoy the read,
Warm regards,
Lady Barbra, Uganda, East Africa.

Lady Barbara, I see your Ugandan flag on my stats sometimes and always think it is you. Thank you for the link!

A great deal of blogging is done by the homemakers who are dedicating themselves to making a stable home life for their loved ones. Those who analyze web traffic cannot help but notice the kind of search words I get on statcounter: encouraging your husband, how to make a curtain, how to offer hospitality from your home, how to make a dress for yourself to wear at home, how to teach your children, setting a table, creating a garden, how to manage your home, how to put spiritual values in your marriage, etc. While I am sure there are a lot of people looking for feminist topics, I know that the homemaker's blogs get a LOT of traffic because they offer workable solutions to every day life and to the problem of stretching a woman's time in too many directions. I believe there are paybacks to working outside of the home. Most women who do, suffer health problems in some way, through injuries at work or just from the colds and things passed around in the workplace. Home is a place where a woman can work and be the boss of her own job, and pursue her own creative talents. She also can better regulate her health and rest at home, all the while working patiently, day by day for a happy future--a pay off of her diligent efforts to follow Tius 2 and 1st Timothey 5:14. In the meantime, while trying to reach that long term goal, she can experience a beautiful life that comes day by day.

The painting looks very familiar... Similar to photos of your front yard and lovely settings.

Thank you for all your articles and comments. A treasure...

Lady Lydia, I know you enjoy paper crafts and I've been meaning to send you this link for a while. It's one of my favorite cooks on Youtube but she also does some paper crafting. I thought of you when I saw the album she made in this video and thought you might enjoy it. :0)

Mrs. V. Thanks for sending this link. This lady certainly updated the box in a high-end style. She used some art products that I have never heard of, such as those pens she used to put the gold tips on the paper flowers.

Hello, I simply love your post and the beautiful painting. It has made me want to break out the best china for my afternoon tea today.

I love your posts. I always seem to come upon them when I'm knee-deep in chores, and they remind me that I can focus on more than just "clean." I can focus on making things beautiful - and it's NOT frivolous! Thank you.
