Good quotes, Peace at Home

Good quotes

From Will's copy work at school:
"Temptation of course cannot be avoided, but because we cannot prevent the birds from flying over our heads, there is no need that we should let them nest in our hair." Martin Luther
Another one:
"Have thy tools ready, God will find thee work." Charles Kingsley
Vocation and Moms: Peace at Home

I just read a Goethe quote. It says, "He is happiest, be he king or peasant, who finds peace at home."

It does seem that one of the greatest earthly delights is a peaceful, tranquil home life. Much can be more easily endured -- tight budgets, physical trials, upheaval of all kinds -- if one has a secure, peaceful family life.

"Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near."
Phil. 4

Marinating... what a great metaphor!

It makes me want to record a PSA for myself that asks: "What are you marinating the children in today?"
