Back to visionary mondays...

It has been nearly a year since I made a Visionary Monday post. I have missed blogging them so I thought I should return. This is just a simple post, but I hope to gather up some resources (books, verses of virtue, and various bloggers) these next few upcoming weeks to make more focussed posts
Here are some beautiful reflections for this week...

It's always a joy to take a peak into simple, old-fashioned living by Miss Mia: Blessings of Everyday

A beautiful summary of keeping home by Miss Jen:

"Six things are requisite to create a happy home. Integrity must be the architect, and tidiness the upholsterer. It must be warmed by affection, and lightened with cheerfulness, and industry must be the ventilator, renewing the atmosphere and bringing in fresh salubrity day by day; while over all, as a protecting and glory, nothing will suffice except the blessings of God." ~ Rev. Hamilton 1878

"Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things."~ Philippians 4:8

And lastly, some words of wisdom by Amy Carmichael that I often need to be reminded of.

"If monotony tries me, and I cannot stand drudgery: if people fret me and the little things of life set me on edge; if I make much of the trifles of life, then I know nothing of Calvary's love."
~ Amy Carmichael
