Do you have a vision for what takes place inside its four walls?
Do you have a passion for making home the best it can be?
This upcoming month, I am daring to challenge you to create the kind of home you've always longed for. I kept trying to put these posts off. For every manor of reasoning, I've tried to push these posts out of my mind. My blog header is outdated. I don't have a fancy button. I don't have pretty pictures to go with my posts. I'm not even living in my own house! I...I...I.... But still, this series has been nagging at my heart until finally I found my fingers on the keyboard typing what's been stirring inside of me.
God has put a vision of home inside of my heart that I just desire to share with you. He's been opening my heart to how I can create the kind of home the nurtures my family and I'd like to share with you all that I'm learning. I'm learning as well so please don't count me as an expert. I just want to share the things that I'm trying to create in my home with you. Let's go on this journey together and hopefully all of our families and loved ones will benefit.
So that dream for your home....do you have one?
Proverbs 29:18 says "Where there is no vision, the people perish..." KJV
Google defines "perish" as to "suffer complete ruin or destruction".
Without a vision or a dream for our home, just imagine the destruction that can happen...or maybe already is happening. You have family members running in every conceivable direction, there is a lack of communicaion, you're harried, behind, unorganized, disconnect and overwhelmed. Home life isn't what you ever wanted it to be but did you ever have a plan in the first place of what you wanted that life to look like? I know I didn't.
Recently I've been challenged to take my family back. My family consists of my husband, myself and our 9 month old daughter. We have four dogs - one of which is a rambunxious puppy. We are in the biggest home renovation that one could imagine and we've actually been displaced from our home for over a year. We may not even be moved back in before Christmas. *sigh* The three of us share a bedroom at my inlaws house and as you can imagine, it's cramped. Life right now isn't what I'd ever imagined it would be but as we have had to strip down our life and get rid of the stuff I've come to experience family and home in a whole new way.
Because, home isn't about the stuff. It's about the people that live within your house that make home what it is. So join me as we take a few days to making our homes full of vision, peace and joy. See you tomorrow!
