What does LOVE look like in your home?

What does LOVE look like in your home?
 Bread on the counter with meat and cheese slices placed, chips in a baggy and we embrace
Well wishes for a good day
A Quiet cup of tea
Stopping the world as a child awakes

Extending mutual efforts
delegation of tasks
bellies all fed up to health for the day
Dogs chickens and children
Children treated as one would another
as a friend or sister or brother.
respect given 
amends quickly offered

Green grass and it's cover 
Earth life and beauty waiting to be discovered.
Quiet alone time easily turning to company of one another
Expectation of pleasure 
Accepting dis pleasure as well
Self care and healths preservation
nurture soul body and spirit
welcoming others

Laughter love flows to those that come in from afar
a glass of water given freely when others think of me
as quickly as would each other is as self
poetry of living and giving 
and so much more
this only the beginning of what love looks like 
at my door.

this only now as the day just begins

Beautiful sis, love you.

not freaking out and getting on their case when they're being surly. letting them work out their stuff without feeling like it's my fault they're surly in the first place. menopause and teen boys don't really go together well.

Thanks for playing along! I hope to see you next week. There's something about getting to peek into each other's life and see LOVE there.

God is so awesome, isn't He?

Love is beautiful at your house...

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
