A Commitment to Loveliness


I love Emma's blog, Charming the Birds from the Trees. I thought I would begin participating in her Commitment to Loveliness. With two young ladies watching my every step, I want to show them the importance of caring for oneself, tending to home and the honor of having been created a lady. Would you like to join me? Each week, simply pick five things to add to the beauty and femininity of your life and post about them. Simple! Here are mine for this week...

1. To begin wearing a bit of fragrance everyday, even when I stay at home. The girls love it and it makes me feel special.
2. I would like to exude more the beautiful fragrance of my Lord.
3. I will begin spending time in God's word again...I've been so neglectful lately.
4. Increase the numbers of water I drink each day. I've done so well with this as of late but there are still days that I don't come close to the recommended amount.
5. Arrange some fresh flowers for our Easter centerpiece.

Hello. I absolutely love your blog! It is, indeed, feminine and very inspiring. Not only so, but you lift up the Lord, and I appreciate your love for him.

I would like to mention that I, too, am a southern lady and live in the deep South. I wouldn't have it any other way, unless, of course, God was otherwise willing.

Again, your blog is entirely charming. May He bless you with grace and peace.

What a great idea, something simple yet productive. Your girls are so blessed to have your gentle beauty and example to look up to. :)

Such a pretty post. It's very inspiring. I'm going to try and think of five things to bring more peace and lovliness to my home as well. I'll probably start by donating as many things as I can to Goodwill!!!! Cluttered drawers really can be a hindrance to me.

Hello, again! Oh, thank you so much for your visit to my blog and your precious comments!

The picture is actually my living room. My family room is a little more comfortable. Thank you for your comment. I just really like a cottage-like atmosphere and a place to refresh and relax.

Well, I live in Huntsville, Alabama. Do you live close by?

I'm so glad we can get acquainted. Your blog is so lovely!

Take care, and God bless.

In Christ's Love,

Andrea

It is truly a blessing to have met you in this blog world. I find your posts to be so charming and inspiring.
I think it is a priviledge to raise my daughters. I agree with your commitment and would love to join you in it!
Thank you also for reminding me to drink my water today!

I'm sorry that we do not live near each other, but I thank God that we can be kindred spirits through our blogs. Thank you for your words of kindness. Many blessings to you today.

Yes, I will always remember the lovely rose scent my mother wore every Sunday when I was growing up. Pretty music!
