I had the pleasure of playing yesterday! Dolls, dollhouse, cookies and icing all filled a good couple hours of my afternoon. I had one of the sweet little girls from our church over just so I could spend some one-on-one time with her. The Lord brought this to my mind a couple of months ago when I was asking the Lord how I should fill my time in this new phase of my life. Who says our company should always be our peers? She was a sweet guest – she even helped me clean house – the dollhouse that is.
This dollhouse belongs to my 25 year-old who has no place for it right now. It had been neglected and needed some TLC, which my young friend was happy to give! We dusted and swept it out, then did a little decorating in each room, setting the tables in the kitchen and dining rooms, displaying the toys in the playroom, and even putting up the Christmas tree and gifts in the living room. Once the dollhouse was in place we went upstairs to decorate sugar cookies. She was a pro, and so careful to put just the right colors together. Of course some of the icing hit our fingers, but we made short order of that! Lick!!! and it’s gone! =)
That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. Titus 2:3-5
One thought on “Young Women”
Very cute! Sounds like so much fun! I'm sure she'll remember this time forever–the time she spent with her pastor's wife when she was how old? Very important, but easily neglected if we don't think about it. Thanks for the reminder!
