I came across this wonderful poem and I just had to share it with you. I think it so aptly describes what we as homemakers strive for on a daily basis. What a wonderful and important responsibility God has placed in our care.
All day I did the little things
The little things that do not show.
I brought the kindling for the fire
I set the candles in a row.
I filled a bowl with marigolds
The shallow bowl you love the best
And made the house a pleasant place
Where weariness might take its rest.
You came into that quiet room
That glowed enchanted with the bloom
Of yellow flame. I saw your face
Illumined by the firelit space.
Slowly grow still and comforted
"It's good to be at home," you said.
