My Daily Blessing from My Daily Bible Reading
with meditations by my mother, Poetess Gertrude Sanborn


Genesis 18:1 -- Genesis 20:14




"Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold in the tent."

This verse has meant much to me since 1948, when Dr. D. A. Waite and I were married.

Along with other Scriptures, I have come to admire Abrahamís wife. She was a woman who learned to call her husband "Lord." This showed him the "respect" due to his position as a husband. Doing this is not always easy.

We also have observed that Sarah learned to be happy in her tent. This, too, was something to be learned. Thatís where she was when the angels came and declared that she would be having a child in nine months. Thought she laughed inwardly, she still showed "respect," keeping behind her TENT DOOR listening.

So many women today do not believe that their primary function, as a wife, is to be the "keeper" of her home. It is her responsibility to guard that house, not only against thieves and people who would contaminate her children with worldliness, but also it is her responsibility to keep sexually pure for her husband and to protect him from women who would draw him away from her. This being "a keeper of the house" is a full time job! (ysw)


As Christian women, we should strive always to be what and where God wants us to be.

This takes care our attitude and action.

Why should it be difficult to find virtuous women among us? (GGS)

(Proverbs 31:25)


And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent. And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son.

And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him.

(Genesis 18:10)
