"....Your children shall be like olive plants all around your table." Psalm 128:3

Queen of the Home 5


"The Bible gives her place of majesty and dignity in the domestic circle - the heart of her husband and the heart of her family.
It is the female supremacy of that domain, where love, tenderness, refinement, thought, and tender feeling preside.
It is the privilege of making her husband happy and honored, and her sons and daughters the ornaments of human society.
It is the sphere of piety, prudence, diligence, in the domestic station, and a holy and devout life.
It is the sphere that was occupied by Hannah, the mother of Samuel;
by Elizabeth, the mother of John;
by Eunice, the mother of Timothy,
and by Mary, the mother of Jesus.
It is the respect and esteem of mankind."

-  John Angell James



Have a blessed day, friends!
