They make me think of spending my summer days on the front porch and winter evenings in the rocking chair stitching away on my handwork. Of passing the afternoons bent over my sewing machine or the cutting table. Busy warm hours at home with my dear family around me.
I like these verses
Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life,
to mind your own business and to work with your hands,
just as we told you,
so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders
and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.
I Thessalonians 4:11,12
