Women At Home

White Door Cottage - Dwayne Warwick www.allposters.com


Thank God, O women, 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 a queen's coronet. 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 garniture that place with more splendor than the upholsterer's hand ever kindled.
Rev. T.DeWitt Talmage, D.D.
Taken from "Verses of Virtue" The Poetry and Prose of Christian Womanhood, Compiled and Edited by Elizabeth Beall Phillips
