Everything Beautiful

He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end. 

 Ecclesiates 3:11

Thank you! :) I also want to add I am really enjoying your daughter's posts too. The Pleasant Times is a very special blog. Please thank her for me too. Sarah

Thank you. She has a good post coming soon, and I plan to write something on the same subject.

I always have a million subjects and ideas in my mind but never the time to devote to them. I do hope to resume blogging more regularly very soon. Since it is raining today I'll be more confined to the house and able to post. Be sure and go read Lillibeth's recent post, everyone. You can comment here if you like, since she doesn't have comments on her blog.

RE: the posting preparation on the pleasant times.

The article on your daughter’s blog is the type of article that is so helpful to young women, as well as those of my age (over 21 by a few decades). I think far to few people even think of the idea of preparation for just about anything, and so many life situations (especially marriage) in my view need to be taken a little more serious especially in the area of preparation. I am saddened by the number of divorces I keep hearing about.
While my own daughters don’t sew, or knit they both know how. They also know a little about meal planning and some things about home management as well as a little about home decorating.
There are many things in homemaking that I never considered until getting the internet and finding blogs, especially those blogs similar to your own. For one, I never thought of what few things could I have in our home to deepen the pantry. I have learned many useful crafting and sewing ideas through you and your daughter. Like many others, I like to print the articles off to read them without having to be on the computer. I too look forward to your new postings. I find that many of your postings fill-in for what I did not learn in my youth, either at home or at school, or even at church By the way have you or any of your friends been conducting homemaking classes or conducting finishing schools.

Since the recent royal weddings I am also interested in seeing what ideas you might have for decorating a wedding or reception especially since so many of your ideas are frugal without looking cheap. Also have you ever hosted a tea (or other event) for young girls (say fifth to tenth graders) teaching them about weddings and perhaps preparing a hope chest? And does the young girl still come to your home for sewing lessons?
