A Little Thought For Your Home This Weekend

“Home is the place where the whispers of God’s love are heard regularly, the touch of His hands are given intentionally throughout the day, the words of His encouragement and affirmation pointed to lay the foundations of loving relationships.”
-The Mission of Motherhood

Today, I simply want to leave you a little thought for your weekend on the importance of home. It is such an honor that God has trusted each of us mothers to be cultivators of beauty and life-givers within the walls that our loved ones reside. Perhaps you’ve lived in your house forever, watching all of your children grow up. Or maybe you’ve just moved and are feeling exhausted in the midst of so much transition.

Whether you’ve spent years in your home or are starting over, it is easy for us to feel overwhelmed by¬†work when we think about home. This weekend, I challenge you to be inspired by all of the amazing, beautiful, lively moments that can and will happen in your home.

Home is the place where chairs are rocked…

Home is the place where you are able to bring hearts together though meals, prayers, memories, laughter, and conversation.

What will you do with your home this weekend?

    Our middle son is coming home from college today for his winter break. There will be a lot of hugging, laughing and snuggling at our house this weekend. We are grateful

    Getting ready to grab a friend to help take a family picture, and then home to make our own Christmas trees today with garland and tomato cages (to save money and we think several of the fam are allergic to the real deal), so we can each have one in a different room – a veritable Christmas forest in the house, using them as “mailboxes” for this idea: Heard of a new family tradition of 12 days of Christmas, thinking of others daily, little homemade gifts or acts of service – appreciating each little thing and one another for longer, with stockings and special breakfast Christmas day instead of the buildup to one day and loads of presents.
