In Quietness and Hope

" In returning and rest you shall be saved; and in quietness and hope shall be your strength."
Isaiah 30:15

Months ago I liked to read a blog I believed was a link from here. It was a woman from America that married a Scotsman,a farmer and she was writing about her lively new home life. Do you know what that was?
Your blog is a bright spot in my day. I have my family read your essays frequently and have printed out many of them and keep them in a folder to look at or use in teaching at home or for other ladies (I always acknowledge these comments and writings are yours!).
You don't know me but we are certainly like minded!

Thank you for sharing the lovely picture and Bible verse. Hope your Sunday was wonderful!

When you have time, stop by the new blog of my daughter, Sarah. She is a 12 young lady-in-waiting. She designed this lovely blog by herself and fills it with her original verse.

I enjoy reading your blog, and could really use your help. Could you write an article on the everyday business of being submissive. I don't think I've ever seen a submissive wife (a lot of strong willed women in my family). I've been married for 3 years now, and I'm realizing that although I know the principle of being submissive, I don't know what to do. What do I do when my husband and I disagree about financial decisions, or raising the children? What if I see him about to make a really big mistake, and he won't change his mind. What do I do when I see a flaw in him that really effects our family (drinking, laziness, going out to much). What do I do when I'm really upset with him? How do I deal with the frustration/disappointment without taking charge? How do I handle these struggles in a godly way? I would appreciate your counsel.

Thank you for any assistance,
