One of Abbie’s school projects ~ an ink and watercolor sketch
The chicken notecards Abbie made for me for Christmas ~ I love them!♥
I so admire those who are blessed with fine art skills. I was thinking about this lately and kind of wishing that fine art was one of my gifts. Although I love to make things, I don’t have skills in any of the fine arts. Just after thinking about this, I came across this quote again, and oh, what an encouragement!
“Practise economy as a Fine Art: make a duty and a pleasure of it…economy is a high Christian duty, that nothing be lost”. ~ From “The Complete Home: An Encyclopedia Of Domestic Life And Affairs”
Can’t we all do this? I just love how the Lord comes and encourages us! And so now I am inspired afresh to “practise economy as a Fine Art”! And it is pleasurable and rewarding! It’s something that I can always grow in and work at improving, just as if I was painting or sketching!
What are some of the ways you “practise economy” in your home?
