Home

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 –

 

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

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. 🏡

Mary’s Home ~ A Home with the Heart of God

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.
