A well-written answer...

to a good question.

Jasmine Baucham answers the question that I've heard asked in many different ways. The questioner asked her what she will do as a daughter who chooses to stay and serve at home if she is not married by the magical age of 30. Jasmine answers the question with grace and eloquence.

I'm linking as an encouragement to the young ladies who I know are trying to work these things out in their own lives. I'm also hoping to help those who honestly don't understand this way of doing things to understand better.

Remembering one of my Dad's favorite authors

"Is there no refuge from strife? Is there no place of refreshing where a man can prepare for the battle of life? Is there no place where two or three can gather in Jesus’ name, to forget for the moment all those things that divide nation from nation and race from race, to forget human pride, to forget the passions of war, to forget the puzzling problems of industrial strife, and to unite in overflowing gratitude at the foot of the Cross? If there be such a place, then that is the house of God and that the gate of heaven. And from under the threshold of that house will go forth a river that will revive the weary world." (Christianity and Liberalism [1923], 180-81)
