Here most of us are, sitting at home. On any normal day isn’t this the place we long to be?
Here is a little reminder of the beauty of Home –
A place of solitude
The building of a sanctuary
Where peace is found
A place of communion
The ringing of laughter
Where joy is shared
A place of gathering
The keeping of conversations
Where bonds are made
A place of meals
The filling of the empty
Where hearts are warmed
A place where wisdom is taught
The falling of tears
Where grace is given
A place of warm blankets
The drifting off to sleep
Where rest is found
A place of understanding
The art of listening close
Where knowledge is known
A holy place
Where rooms are filled
With precious and pleasant riches
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. 🏡
Happy Friday! It’s time to go home. 🏡💕
Through wisdom a house is built,
And by understanding it is established;
By knowledge the rooms are filled
With all precious and pleasant riches. Proverbs 24:3-4
Home a holy place, a sacred place. A simple place filled with precious and pleasant riches. 🏡💕 Proverbs 24:3-4
Home the safe place for our tears, and where we find rest. 🏡💕 Proverbs 24:3-4
To gather, bring together, to assemble. Lord let our home be our gathering place, where the empty are filled. 🏡💕
Fall has me thinking all things cozy. There is no place like Home. Proverbs 24:3-5 🏡
We are going to take a glimpse into the home of Mary, the Mother of John Mark. Mark as we know him, the Mark who wrote the Gospel of Mark. Not only is Mary a women who used her home and resources to bless others. She raised a son who followed Jesus, who led by the Holy Spirit, wrote about Jesus, we still read his words today in the Gospel of Mark. I would wager that Mary was not only a great hostess, but a great mother as well. Continue reading “Mary’s Home ~ A Home with the Heart of God”
