What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Preparations


This weekend we are having company! When we first moved out here, it seemed every weekend we had people come-but that was just the first few months. Then it didn't just taper off-it stopped! I am glad to have Bob and Elizabeth (my Sis and BIL and their family) come to stay with us a whole weekend!

One thing that I really love about my Mattie is that he recognizes the great beauty of flowers and the wonderful addition it makes to hospitality. When he worked near a store (in NY), he used to surprise me with them every now and then and even when we moved here-out in the boonies, during the summer he would stop by the roadside and gather a few wildflowers.

Needless to say, I took the opportunity to treat myself for the occasion of my sister coming. These beauties, coupled with the $2.00 tulips from last week...my house is starting to resemble an easter bonnet and oh, how I love it!

Here are a few shots of my company flowers...now off to get cleaning! :-)
