The beauty of the house is order;
The blessing of the house is contentment;
The glory of the house is hospitality;
The crown of the house is godliness.
There are four themes in the lines of this quatrain, and each has an inspiration all its own, but the third detaches itself most easily as a special phase of homemaking.
