What makes a home?

 

Is it the flooring?

The wall decor?

What key ingredient is a

HOME?

Long before I was old enough I began to plan my first home.

I thought about what I would decorate with and how I would bake cakes, cookies, pies.

Yesterday our almost eleven year old girl said to me,

“Mommy, I really like sewing and doing things at home. I am really looking forward to taking care of my children when I have them and cooking and baking and making things for them.”

I smiled.

“I felt the same way when I was your age sweetheart.”

She grinned around the little cape she was making for her doll.

In that moment I thought about all those childhood dreams of home.

There have been many rough times in the past when the house I lived in was very far from the home I so desperately wanted and it had nothing to do with the carpet, but everything to with the people.

The answer to what makes a home is what goes on there.

So the ingredients I have found that truly make home are these:

Jesus

love

the Bible

peace

patience

kindness

goodness

gentleness

understanding

thoughtfulness

selflessness

service

encouragement

hugs

prayer

What makes your house a

home?
