A Girl Writing

A Girl Writing by Henriette Browne
The above painting was done by Henriette Browne, a French woman who traveled to the orient and did many paintings depicting life there (though the above art is a French scene). She lived from 1829-1901. Can you think of others who lived during that time?

Doesn't this young lady in the picture look peaceful as she sits writing at her desk? Isn't that bird precious just perched there like a common companion? Younger girls probably have time in your life for this kind of quiet reflection and should embrace it. What do you think she is writing? I am going to imagine with you that she is copying down her favorite poetry…

Questions for the maidens:
  • Did you know that the Book of Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Songs are regarded as the "Poetry" books in the Bible?
  • Do you have a favorite verse from any of the Scriptures mentioned above? Please share it in the comment box below.

    Inspirational Scrapbooks for Mothers and Maidens:


    Have you ever tried your hand at writing poems? Why not create an inspirational scrapbook. Using a notebook binder, composition book or journal, record your favorite poems, passages and special quotes in it. You might also like to decorate the pages with pretty pictures or clip art. It can be something special that you can pass down to your daughter one day! You may be surprised to find yourself penning in your own words on the pages for the more you read pretty poetry, the more your mind will think beautiful thoughts…

    "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."

     ~ Philippians 4:8
