Spring is flirting with us. Spring brings the jonquils and the tulips, not to mention the Black-capped Chickadee giving his whistled ‘fee-beee‘ and, intermittently, stopping to gurgle out his wild joy of freedom; and the cow’s coat getting shiny, and the calves racing across the pasture with their tails rolled over their backs, and the pleasant feel of bare feet on the green grass, and boys with their tin cans and worms and poles.
Spring also brings dreams to the homemaker who adores the fresh air and the glories of nature at her doorstep. Not always can we create something of such a whimsical nature as to make our own little Eden on earth, but many a true Queen of the home has tried to add such little touches as to bring a simple beauty there.
These simple and do-able ideas delight me; I want to share them with you. They needn’t be expensive. Recycle what you have already. A well-thought out plan can make a drab corner a bright spot.
Your contentment working alongside your creativity is one of the sweetest ornaments you can bring to your home! We can transmit great joy to our children and teach them that “if Mom is content, I can be content.” It is catching!
I have a part two coming with some more fresh and clever ideas for your little slice of Eden. Stay tuned :~)
“For the LORD will comfort Zion, He will comfort all her waste places; He will make her wilderness like Eden, And her desert like the garden of the LORD; Joy and gladness will be found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of melody.” ~Isaiah 51: 3
