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

Civilized Pleasures

"'How is it that everyone here is such a good host - always coming up with delicious sweets, cakes and roast meats, a warm fire and good company?'
'Civilized pleasures from an earlier era, Prudencia.'" - The Awakening of Miss Prim by Natalia Sanmartin Fenollera

  2. Yes, I think that it's the calmness and quietness that is so alluring :)
