Nancy's TOP POST #6!
"A mother had better be missed in the church, and at the public meetings--than be missed in her own household.:"~J. R. Miller.
I am reminded of of the words of the Shulamite in Song of Songs 1:6, "They made me the keeper of the vineyards; but my own vineyard have I not kept."
Don't let society, or even pressure from the church keep you from keeping your own vineyard.
