Dignity at Home

"We are having very nice weather."

All is well at The Manse.

In this broadcast  read the story of the Queen of Sheba taking spices as a gift to Solomon,
in First Kings chapter 10.

The song below, contains the words of the Queen of Sheba when expressing to Solomon her wonder at all God had done for him: "Truly, the half has never yet been told."

Printable sheet music for this song HERE.
This song was written in 1859 and by the early 1960's was still in the church hymnals.


I also mentioned a discussion I heard called "Jane Austen: A Novel Approach to Virtue."
I am almost certain you will like it too.

Please rest, work, walk or do something you have been putting off, while you listen today:

I find your Youtube videos so encouraging and uplifting. You always have a pretty background in your home. I know it sounds funny but I normally listen to you at bedtime. When my husband is on the road traveling I turn you on and I listen until I fall asleep. Sometimes, it takes me at least 30 minutes to fall asleep. I like that you mentioned that we ladies shouldn't share our history with people in giving a simple answer to a question, I tend to be guilty in that area. I need to just answer a question without explaining everything to that person. If someone says my outfit is nice I need to just say thank you and not explain in detail about how old it is or where I bought it. I am going to try and improve in that area of my life. Thank you for taking the time to create these videos. They are a blessing to me and so many other people. Have a good weekend. Dolores

I cannot wait to see and hear you, you are just lovely. I bought a copy of winsome womanhood and I'm enjoying it so much, I love it when you share your books, I always get excited over good wholesome books. Thank you so much for making these videos they are absolute treasures.

I just finished this talk, Lydia. I am still way behind, but moving through your talks gradually. I particularly appreciated this one, the first part of which I listened to yesterday while I made supper. I really appreciated your advice about having dignity and self-respect even when people mistreat you. I had had "one of those days" where I had in fact been treated badly by someone, and it helped me feel better to hear you talk about how we can still hold our head high and not let our feathers get ruffled by difficult people.

I listened to the other half of this broadcast while I made a batch of zucchini chocolate chip muffins, with the very last of the zucchini from my freezer from last year's garden. When my teen children's friends stop by and I know they're going to be here for supper, I like to make up a batch of muffins for dessert to make the meal a little more special.

Now on to the next talk! :)
