Behind the Poem: Home

I love everything about home.

I love coming home at the end of the day and pulling on my cozy clothes.

I love standing in my kitchen preparing a meal.

I love sitting around the table with family and friends, and the conversation that is found there.

And I love this scripture about home.

By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures. Proverbs 24:3-4

It takes wisdom to build a house.

Home is the place where we purpose to understand each other. The safe place where we and our children are established.

It’s where our minds are filled with knowledge of God as our heads bend over our Bibles.

Home is where we can ask hard questions, ponder the things of God, and help one another understand.

The knowledge that we find in a home built by wisdom are like rooms filled with rare and beautiful treasure. 🏡
