It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 3, Page 9, Book 12

In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day  of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
Genesis 7:11


When ever I think about the windows of heaven, I'm reminded of a very old song that said:  Stars are windows of heaven where angels peep though.
Some will look into anothers eyes and claim they are the windows to heaven.

In life, we have windows. More accurately, God has provided us with windows from which to view the world. Most times, we learn to like one or two windows over the others. Some windows we get to use in company with certain individuals--those who want to get our attention.

Life is like a house. It has doors and windows, floors and walls and ceilings. It has rooms where we keep our personal things, away from the world's scrutiny. 
Rooms have windows. Often, you have a particular window in your room you prefer looking out from. Sometimes, you use other windows, but there is a window you more often use to get a view of the outside world.

A smile is the light in the window of your face that tells people you're at home.

A smile is the light in the window of your face that tells people you are home. ~ How true, Ma ~ This simple 'nugget' really says it all. Blessya! ~ Jean(Rome Georgia Girl living in Calhoun ((( I love quotations and the one on a plaque on my TV says ((If you can't sleep, don't count sheep. Talk To The Shepherd.))) ~ I think this advice ia for (anything) as I remember a favourite hymn JUST A LITTLE TALK WITH JESUS, makes it right.


I have never heard this before, "Stars are windows of heaven where angels peep though." I absolutely LOVE it. It is how I see them. Over the years the view outside at my house has changed from window to window. But the joy of looking out has not. have a good day. take care.
