"My Home" ...A Creed.
Moms Against Manic Mondays Link Up

Happy Monday beautiful ladies!!!

There are so many beautiful things about Mondays . . . Here at From My Mountain View, every Monday, we band together and renounce/reject manic Mondays.  Right here is a perfect place for us to encourage one another and be encouraged!  Moms Against Manic Mondays is a place you can share a post or article on your blog about Mondays, encouragement, joy, pressing on, etc, etc.  :)

  • To share a link to your post just submit your link and title using the widget at the end of this post (it's easy)!
  • Remember to link your blog post back here by adding our adorable button found on the sid-bar, courtesy of Plumrose Lane.
  • And then you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments (which is the heart of this community).  :)

"My Home"

This was posted by Robin over at Music of the Heart.  Thanks so much Robin for joining the link-up and for your super encouraging words!  Feel free to grab my button from the side-bar that reads, "I Was Featured On From My  Mountain View," to post to your blog or this week's Moms Against Manic  Monday post!  :)
Here is the lovely, enjoyable, and encouraging poem Robin shared:
The dishes may not all be done,
And dirty socks may be in one
Or two spots that they shouldn’t be,
But what is all of that to me
When a little girl has set up Tea?

The garden has a few more weeds
Than probably the produce needs,
And possibly a bug at play,
But they will last another day
When a boy of mine needs to pray.

I’m not a fashion model, and
I don’t wear diamonds on my hand,
Or pretty baubles in my ear,
But I am making time to hear
The trials of my husband dear.

The company that comes to call
May need look down so not to fall,
And step around a thing or two,
But if they care to kick off shoes,
A listening ear and tea will do.

I’m not a perfect housekeep, or
The type to get it done and more,
Sometimes I find my house, it seems
Much better in my waking dreams,
But home is what the heart esteems.

So I will focus on the best,
A little work, a little rest,
And time for all who come aboard,
Time of prayer to hear my Lord,
And love, the everlasting cord.

Give thanks to the Lord!  His love endures forever!
...counting more of His endless love with A Holy Experience...


  1. Oh, yes. Just this. From one tired mamma to another--rest in Him today, sweet friend!

    1. Hey Laura! :) Yes, indeed... Much needed rest. And intentionality to not strive to be "super mom," but rather an "abiding in Him mom."

      Love always! <3
