The Work of Art Called “Home”

by June Fuentes on August 15, 2017 in Homemaking, Quotes

“A pleasant atmosphere in the home creates a beautiful background for happy memories.

Because I want the warm atmosphere and the good memories it fosters, I plan for it.

I plan the meals, including how I set the dinner table and make it beautiful.

I plan for order in the home, for the housework, for the laundry, and for the upkeep of our clothing so that life is calmer.

I plan surprises, too, so that life at home is fun.

If all the planning sounds like a lot of effort, remember that no work of art is slapdashed together.

Artistry calls for planning and design,

and so does the work of art called “Home”.

 

~ Elizabeth George, Beautiful in God’s Eyes

Nice inspiration for my cleaning day 🙂

I think sometimes we forget to treat homemaking as a full time job. Society sees it as laziness – it can be, if done without full appreciation of it’s importance. It’s awesome to remember that God sees it as important enough to instruct us to “guide the house” in Titus 2.

Again: a great reminder for my cleaning day 🙂

Er, 1st Timothy 5, rather. (Two of my favorite scriptures. I get their references switched around:P)
