It's not a particularly large house at about 1800-2000 sq. ft., 3 bedrooms/2 baths, but I am so thankful for this home. It's nice and comfortable and Ronnie has done so much to really make it ours. We have taken down walls to make it a more "open" floor plan, painted walls, laid wood and ceramic floorings, and the list goes on and on. We have a lot left to do, like gutting my kitchen, but more and more it is home. We have made many great memories here and hope to make many, many more.
When I write about our "home" I am constantly reminded that the King of Kings, sent to save the world, did not even have a pillow to lay His head upon.
Jesus said to him," The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head."~~~ Matthew 8:20
So no matter what the state of our home, we should be content!!
And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.~~~ 1 Timothy 6:8
As a wife and a mother, I should be working diligently to have a home atmosphere that is pleasing to my family and to the Lord.
This is what I am striving towards and to raise children to do the likewise.
