Our family WELCOMES you to Lines From The Vine!
My name is Tracy. I am a devoted helpmeet and wife to my high school sweetheart, Paul. We believe wholly the scripture in Psalms 127:3 that reads: 'Lo, children are a heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.'. We have been blessed with nine precious children- three virtuous daughters, and six noble sons that we are bringing up in the nuture and admonition of the Lord.
C.H. Spurgeon once said 'Homemaking is the grandest of all institutions.' It is certainly the birth place of civilization. Homemaking, marriage, motherhood,homeschooling and the like are not things that have come easy to me. At times, I think that I have made more mistakes than not. Proverbs 31:10 says "Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.' Like many of you, I want to be that woman that is treasured 'far above rubies'. This site is a reflection of my journey - prayerfully taking one day at a time and learning along the way.
Whether you are a girl still learning and serving in your Father's home, a new homemaker, expecting your first baby, managing a home full of children, or somewhere in between- our goal is that this would be a place to find ideas, money saving strategies, information, and fellowship. The links and tips you find, are those we have found helpful and use for our own family.
A Christian Home
By Barbara R. Hart
(Published in Verses of Virtue)
O give us homes built firm upon the Savior,
Where Christ is Head and Counselor and Guide;
Where every child is taught His love and favor
And gives his heart to Christ, the crucified:
How sweet to know that though his footsteps waver
His faithful Lord is walking by his side!
O give us homes with Godly fathers, mothers,
Who always place their hope and trust in Him:
Whose tender patience turmoil never bothers,
Whose calm and courage trouble cannot dim;
A home where each finds joy in serving others,
And love still shines, tho' days be dark and grim.
O Lord, our God, our homes are Thine forever!
We trust to Thee their problems, toil, and care;
Their bonds of love no enemy can sever
It Thou are always Lord and Master there:
Be Thou the center of our least endeavor--
Be Thou our Guest our hearts and homes to share.
May it one day be said of each of us: 'She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.' Proverbs 31:27. I hope that as you visit, you will be inspired and encouraged in your sacred calling of creating a home.
