“A House is Built with Boards and Beams
A Home is Built with Love and Dreams”
I don’t know who first came up with this quote, but it has really got me pondering things…
My question is…When does a new house become your home? I lived in my last home for 24 years, so I can’t remember when it wasn’t our home but I am sure there must have been a time when it too was just a house.
As I look at the destruction of the house that we are tearing down
I can’t help but think about this….to me it is just a house…but to someone… it once was a home. I’d like to think it was a home full of laughter…and love. And from what I hear from the neighbors I think that is true.
As I plan our new “house” I am looking forward most to having a “HOME” for my family. One that we can all come together and share life..the good and the bad…I pray that our HOME will be a place of safety…and nourishment, so as we head back out into the world to do the work of the Lord, that we might have a renewed spirit and energy.
I want a place where love can abound and one that when my grandchildren tell their children about it they will speak of the sound of laughter…not what the tile looked like… I must stay focused on what is really important in the big scheme of things.
So for all of you out there that have moved… I would love to hear how long it took for you to feel like the new place was your home.
