There’s No Place Like Home

Lord, through all generations, you have been our home!

Psalm 90:1

Recently, I came across a music video that reminded me of how our homes should represent everything that’s good and warm, and loving and lasting in our lives.  (It doesn’t always feel like that when we’re in the heat of the battle disciplining our teens; but even if this is done correctly, once a child leaves home they should still be able to equate their home experience – though emotionally turbulent from time to time – with memories of deep and abiding parental love and care.)

The video recounts the experience of Sara Groves, who, as an adult, visits the home she grew up in. Her visit engenders feelings of warmth, love and familial harmony, and features pictures from her happy childhood.

As a mom, I know I’d want my children to experience the same feelings as Sara if they were to visit the home of their childhood as adults; and this is what I’m working towards every day.  As mothers, it’s easy to forget that our day to day routine of work, school, dinner, homework, house chores (and hopefully family devotion) is creating a life that will one day make our adult kids reminisce lovingly about the home of thier childhood, but that is exactly what (hopefully, with a good bit of intent) should be happening every day.

From the Scriptures…

She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.

Proverbs 31:27

Words to live by…

Where we love is home, home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.

Oliver Wendell Holmes
