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

"But apart from the accepted will of God, nothing has any lasting reality.  So if God wills that you should be bowed over the sink instead of over the pew in your favourite church, then washing dishes is for you, now, the most perfect thing that you can possibly do." - Holiness for Housewives by Dom Hubert Van Zeller

The Kitchenmaid (1720) by Giuseppe Maria Crespi
