Keeper At Home

Her work is done behind the scenes-
No fanfare or great show.
She does the duties left unseen
As though the world would know.

No task's too small to leave undone
Or do with little vim.
Her home's a palace fair to all,
But 'specially to HIM!

The good works that she does reach out
Beyond her own abode;
She showers deeds of kindliness
To all upon life's road.

Her motherhood is also known;
Her children rise up here
And say that of all womenfolk
She's blessed and most dear.

- Becky Vradenburgh

This was taken from the beginning of the book "Order In The Court" by Sherry Hutson Camperson. It's a wonderful book on orderliness in the home and gives great tips and advice. I highly recommend it!
