To the Women

It's been a whole 2 weeks that I've been blogging... Here's what I've learned:

Women all over the world are doing exactly what I am doing... trying to be the best wife to their hubby, mother to their children, friend to their neighbor, and disciple of their Savior.



I am so impressed by all of you wonderful women! I visit your blogs, read your comments, and emails and I am inspired by your faithfulness. What a great influence you are in your corners of the world.

I want to share my favorite Hymn... it speaks to the work we do as women.
The text is by Emily H. Woodmansee 1836-1906 Galatians 6:2, 9-10.

As sisters in Zion, we'll all work together;
The blessings of God on our labors we'll seek.
We'll build up his kingdom with earnest endeavor;
We'll comfort the weary and strengthen the weak.

The errand of Angels is given to women;
And this is a gift that, as sisters, we claim:
To do what-so-ever is gentle and human,
To cheer and to bless in humanity's name.

How vast is our purpose, how broad is our mission,
If we but fulfill it in spirit and deed.
Oh, naught but the Spirit's divinest tuition
Can give us the wisdom to truly succeed.


Have a wonderful Sabbath day my sisters around the world. God bless the works you do in your homes and spheres of influence!

Hey Pretty, I'm also new to blogging just about 1 week! I'm so glad I found your site so soon after starting. I am amazed at the women I have "met" also. Be sure and visit me today, you're my featured post! God Bless.

That's a beautiful hymn, one I've never heard before. Thanks for sharing!
I just found your blog a couple of days ago, and didn't realize until today that you were so new to the blog scene. Your hat boxes you make are beautiful, but not as beautiful as those children of yours!

Isn't blogland a great place to connect with other believers? I started blogging back in March and haven't regretted it yet. I have met so many great people.

Happy 2 week anniversary!

I love the blogging world. I have been blessed by so many wonderful people since I began my blogging journey. I love the words to As sisters in Zion. Everytime we sing it at church, I get teary eyed. Have a wonderful sabbath!

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit, hope you come back soon! Isn't blogging fun? I started in September & have had so much fun meeting ladies from all over the country. Their decorating & cooking ideas are so great. Also, their love of the Lord is such an inspiration! Have a super week.
Smiles,
Carol

It is really neat to know that there are other women out there who have the same passion for God, family, and home.
