A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
Proverbs 25:11

Emilie Barnes Quote

"Strong, beautiful femininity is part of our heritage as women.
When we make the effort to cultivate such gentle strength,
we not only enrich our own lives and make life a little better for those we encounter;
we also pass on the spirit of femininity to the next generation."
~ The Spirit of Loveliness,
by Emilie Barnes

I loved the quote and the picture! Your new blog header is beautiful.

I have tried so hard to find this book of Emilie Barnes', but it's rather rare. I did find a small, nugget version called "Heart of Loveliness" but it's only the "heart" of what she wrote in the full version.

When I am fortunate enough to receive it, I'm planning on reading it and jotting down any quotes that especially touch my heart and then giving it to my daughter :o)

Have a wonderful weekend with your family!

Beautiful quote. It was funny but I was reading her book this afternoon and read that - then came to your blog and found it here too. :) I have been busy with our new one and have not visited in a while. I LOVE the look of your blog - great updates.

Blessings,

If we look around us today, true feminity among women has been lost. Oh but thank God He calls many of us out of the world to bring it back :)
I enjoy being treated with respect and not just 'one of the guys'. I am not a guy, I am a lady.
Hallelujah!

Love it...reminds me of the quote that Mom of 9 has on her site...

Our lives lived as women professing godliness speaks volumes to this world...

Just as I told a woman once..WHY NOT wear a skirt..I AM A WOMAN..right?

like it was a crime!

Keep feminine WOMEN...it's our ministry and testimony!
