Queen of Your Home

14 Nov

I was reading a little devotional this morning by Nancy Campbell called “100 Days of Blessing: Devotions for Wives and Mothers” and came across a quote I wanted to share by Rev. T De Witt Talmage:

“Thank God, O woman, for the quietude of your home, and that you are queen in it.  Men come at eventide to the home; but all day long you are there, beautifying it, sanctifying it, adorning it and blessing it.  Better be there than war a queen’s coronet,  Better be there than carry the purse of a princess.  It may be a very humble home.  There may be no carpet on the floor.  There may be no pictures on the wall.  There may be no silks in the wardrobe; but, by your faith in God, and your cheerful demeanor, you may garniture that place with more splendor than the upholsterer’s hand ever kindles.”

Nancy writes, “Your home is not a prison to restrict your life.  It is a place where God can use you to influence many lives for Him, firstly your children, and multitudes of others who will come into your home over the years.  My greatest delight is to bring people into our home, feed them at our table and by God’s grace, show them God’s love and lead them closer to God”

Lovely words to keep in mind during the holidays and always.
