The spirit of Christ alone will enable us to live together in perfect peace and love. The presence of Christ in the home is a perpetual benediction. We cannot be selfish, we cannot wrangle and strive, we cannot be bitter and unkind, we cannot be irritable and unreasonable, when conscious of the presence of Christ. If only we can make Christ an abiding guest in our home, and if we can keep ourselves aware of His being with us, our household life cannot help but grow wondrously sweet.
Secrets of Happy Home Life, James Russell Miller (1840-1912)
