Tuesday's Tea Party

Welcome to our first Tuesday's Tea Party! Grab a cup of tea (or your favorite cup of coffee if your me), pull up a comfy chair and join me at the table!!

I wasn't quite sure what to venture on today, since there are always so many different things running around in my head, that seem like hampsters on a wheel lately, but I wanted to share with you an EXCELLENT book I've jumped into recently.

Daughter's of Destiny.  I came across this book in a thrift store the other day and I thought "oh how nice, a book of noble and christian strong women". But once I actually started reading this book, it is some of the best writing I have ever read! The stories, the scripture and most of all...the lessons on womanhood. Not your basic Titus 2 reference, but a THOROUGH and TRUTHFUL reference on being a young lady, a wife, a mother and serving the Lord above all. Since I can't even begin to describe this wonderful book, I'll share some of my favorite excerpts so far to date (and I'm barely into this book)...

"Who can find a viruous woman? For her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not harm all of the days of her life". Proverbs 31:10-12

"...Thank God, O Woman, for the quietude of your home, and that you are queen in it. Men come at eventide to the home; but all day long you are there, beautifying it, sanctifying it, adorning it, blessing it.  Better be there than wear Victoria's crown. Better be there than carry the purse of a princess. It may be a very humble home. There may be no carpet on the floor. There may be no pictures on the wall. There may be no silks in the wardrobe; but, by your faith in God, and your cheerful demeanor, you may adorn that place with more splendor than the upholsterer's hand ever kindled."...

"...Six things are requisite to create a happy home: Integrity must be the architect, the tidiness the upholsterer. It must be warmed by affection, and lightened up with cheerfulness, and industry must be the ventilator, renewing the atmosphere and bringing in fresh salubrity day by day; while over all, as a protecting canopy and glory, nothing will suffice except the blessings of God"... Rev Dr. Hamilton

"What we do live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other." George Elliot

I hope you enjoyed some of this as much as I am enjoying reading it! I highly recommend this book for ALL women, daughters, mothers and grandmothers!!  Happy Tuesday!!
