I'd like to build the world a home and furnish it with love...
FANTASTIC Friday/ It is the heart that makes the home
When arks are built, lives are saved. Our homes and our lives could be like the ark of Noah
The ark is a symbol. It was real enough, but for those of us who sense the rising fear and insecurity in our own day, there is an additional lesson here. We must prepare for the safety of our families by building our own arks. They will be refuges for us when storms threaten to capsize us and our families, but only if they are tight, and have no leaks. If we have built arks secure in love, and made them tight, then our homes and our lives will be like the ark of Noah . A refuge in the storm.
To build a house that is within us in our hearts that keep us safe in this world.
Let's build a house where love can dwell.
We need to protect our home and our families and not let what is treasured be stolen from us.
They are a precious commodity and we won't get back any of those stolen moments of time we spend with them.
Proverbs has some very wise words for building a home: by wisdom a house is build and through understanding it is established.
The choice of how I use my time, the words I use, what I laugh at, what I embrace, the looks I give, the praise I give, every thing I say and do can either build up or tear down
It is difficult work that requires great skill.
Anyone can build a house, and anyone can fill that house with beautiful things,
A home is not just the sum of its order and beauty. Even on those days when chaos reigns, a home is truly defined by the spirit that reigns within it
I have seen a sign that states:
A house is built of brick and stone,
but love alone can build a home.
A nice saying, for sure. I build my home through love, and that love is so encompassing!
There have to be things put into place in order for our homes and our families to stand strong and endure the test of time.
We can either be home makers or home breakers. It's all a matter of choice. Choices we make every day in the little things we do and say.
You are the heart of your home...Be sweet to your family. They need you!
Have a fantastic Friday everyone!
