Stone Soup for Five: When Queens Ride By... repost

When Queens Ride By... repost

This story is truly one that has stuck with me for years.  There is not one year that goes by that I don't find myself thinking of Jennie Musgrave and her tattered and frazzled home and heart.

Written in 1888 by Agnes Sligh Turnbull, it is shockingly similar to life today over one hundred years later.

Please print it off and read it at least once a month, or when you feel overwhelmed, frazzled, and unsure what you need to do next.

Get a coffee or tea, print this off, and enjoy.

  1. It is almost strange, but not surprising in the light of God, how timely that message is for me. Thank you.

  2. Beautiful and exactly what I needed to hear this morning. Thank you.

  3. Kari- you won't believe how badly I needed this story today. Beautiful.

  4. Sometimes I need to be reminded.

  5. As a single mother of 4, I work two full time jobs as a nurse. When I get home at night, I have nothing left in me to give. I have struggled with the guilt of not being a "good morher". AND of resenting all who have the time and opportunity to do so. Im not sure how I happened to this sight today.... but I needed to hear it so much. Thank you.
