A wife's charm delights her husband, and her skill puts fat on his bones. Like the sun rising in the heights of the Lord so is the beauty of a good wife in her well-ordered home. Like the shining lamp on the holy lamp stand, so is a beautiful face on a stately figure - Sirach 26:13
Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things. - Php 4:8

"I have never understood myself how this superstition arose: the notion that a woman plays a lowly part in the home and a loftier part outside the home... Most work done in the outer world is pretty mechanical work; some of it is decidedly dirty work. There seems no possible sense in which it is intrinsically superior to domestic work." - Brave New Family by G.K. Chesterton

G.K. Chesterton was full of wisdom, was he now? :) I couldn't agree more!ReplyDelete
He certainly was. I'm looking forward to posting more 'sound bites' from him in the future.
Have a blessed day :)
