Quote from "Stepping Heavenward" by Mrs. E. Prentiss

"She says I shall now have one mouth more to fill and two feet the more to shoe, more disturbed nights, more laborious days, and less leisure or visiting, reading, music and drawing.

Well! This is one side of the story, to be sure, but I look at the other.

Here is a sweet, fragrant mouth to kiss; here are two more feet to make music with their pattering about my nursery. Here is a soul to train for God; and the body in which dwells is worthy of all it will cost, since it is the abode of a kingly tenant. I may see less of friends, but I have gained one dearer than them all, to whom, while I minister in Christ's name, I make a willing sacrifice of what little leisure for my own recreation my other dear darlings had left me. Yes, my precious baby, you are welcome to her time, her strength, her health, her tenderest cares, to her lifelong prayers! Oh, how rich I am, how truly, wondrously blest!"

Fantastic Weekend

What a great weekend I had. I spent Sunday afternoon at my daughter Cindy's and we finished up making lots of jars to sell for Christmas (and for Christmas gifts). You can check out our store at www.TheHandmadeHoliday.etsy.com. We'll be adding little girl Christmas dresses and princess nightgowns, pinecone wreaths, candles, other types of jars and more. Check back often. It's been a lot of fun and it's always great to spend time with the family!

Now I need to get busy and finish up work so I can get school done early with the children.

Let's embrace the spirit of Thanksgiving this holiday season!! Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His love endures forever!!
