The Quietness of Home

Hello, friends. Today I would like to share an older blog post that I found while searching the internet with you. I recently came across it, and it spoke to my heart!

I love the quietness of home. It feels like such a lovely and safe place for my family to retreat to.

That is exactly what I would like for our home to be. A retreat. It is a special place, to be sure.

So today, I’m sending you over to A Wise Woman Builds Her Home. I hope you are encouraged there!

“I think I can understand that feeling about a housewife’s work being like that of Sisyphus (who was the stone rolling gentleman). But it is surely, in reality, the most important work in the world. What do ships, railways, mines, cars, government etc exist for except that people may be fed, warmed, and safe in their own homes? As Dr Johnson said, ‘To be happy at home is the end of all human endeavour’. (1st to be happy, to prepare for being happy in our own real Home hereafter: 2nd, in the meantime, to be happy in our houses.) We wage war in order to have peace, we work in order to have leisure, we produce food in order to eat it. So your job is the one for which all others exist.” – C.S. Lewis

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. Looking for more encouragement? Please consider becoming a Member of Redeeming Home.
