Guiding Little Hearts to Trust and Obey

Nina Lehmann by John Everett Millais, 1868-1869

“Don’t waste time trying to sugarcoat submission to make it palatable. Obeying when you see the sense in it is not submission; it is agreement. Submission necessarily means doing what you do not wish to do. It is never easy or painless.

True biblical submission must be found in knowing Christ and his grace. Don’t try to make it something that does not require grace. Don’t reduce submission to authority to that which fits natural man and natural abilities."

The Dearest Spot of Earth Is Home ~ A Hymn

The Family Gathering by Eugenio Zampighi

The dearest spot of earth to me
  Is home, sweet home!
The fairy land I long to see
  Is home, sweet home!
There how charmed the sense of hearing!
There where love is so endearing!
All the world is not so cheering
  As home, sweet home!

I've taught my heart the way to prize
  My home, sweet home!
I've learned to look with lover's eyes
  On home, sweet home!
There, where vows are truly plighted!
There, where hearts are so united!
All the world besides I've slighted
  For home, sweet home.

~W.T. Wrighton, Composer
1857

Advice is like snow...

A Reading from Goethe by Wilhelm Amberg, 1870

“Advice is like snow — the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper it sinks into the mind.”

~Samuel Taylor Coleridge
