Peaceful Habitation

Isn't it amazing how you can clean and organize the house and before you know it it's cluttered and dirty. Being a Keeper of our home is one job we'll never retire from. And if we embrace God's design for our life we can find purpose, fulfillment and joy in making a home. Always easy? No. Always fun? No. Always appreciated? No. But easy, fun and appreciated are about US, and life isn't about us! It's about obeying God, embracing His will and serving those around us.

Isaiah 32:18 says that one day we will,

"abide in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings and in quiet resting places."

As women we can provide a small taste of this in our homes, for all those who enter. But we cannot have a peaceful and secure home if no one is home taking care of it. And after a long day of work, strife and activity who doesn't enjoy having a home, not just a house, but a HOME to come to and rest quietly?

This week there are no Domestic Day Camps or Carpentry Camps planned, which leaves me wide open to finish several projects and to give this house a good purging, striving to make our house a home, a quiet resting place, a taste of heaven on earth.
