The Grace of a Good Home

The Crown of the house is Godliness
The Beauty of the house is Order
The Glory of the house is Hospitality
The Blessing of the house is Contentment
--Old Inscription

May we as women and mothers strive to improve our homes no matter where we live.  Maybe we live in a cob house in Namibia.  Maybe we live in an apartment complex in New York City.  Maybe we live in a farm house in Iowa or maybe we live across from a busy and wild tavern or strip club.

May we women always strive to build a godly house where children obey their parents
May we women always strive to build a house that has order specific directions
May we women always strive to build greater hospitality either frugally, naturally or with the granting of gifts
May we women always strive to build a house where the people who dwell within are content and happy to be there as we strive to meet their needs above our own.

And most important may we always strive to invite the Holy Spirit to fill our homes with all that is true and good in our lives.
