It's Friday. Whoo! Which means Pastor's home ALL DAY with us. I'm been counting the days down, because even though it hasn't been a really long week. I urn for time with him, time for the kids to have with him, time to just be a family.
Friday also means 5 minute Friday link up. I'm joining Lisa Jo Baker for 5 minutes of unedited writing. It's something I really have become to enjoy!
Home. An easy one. Or that's what it "seems". Home is something that we've created for my 3 littles. We've had many "houses", but we've truly created a HOME here. While in college, seminary, and vicarage (what internship for pastors is called) we had houses, it never was really 'home'. We've made our house here in Idaho, our home. We've done that by surrounding our family with the Love of Jesus (and Jesus loving people).
We've been in this home for almost three years now. I realized its the longest place that Pastor and I have lived, since we've been married. It's nice not having to pack boxes and move every two years (or ever year). Home is our safe place. The place where we can be US.
Our home is filled with laughter, love, patience, joy, peace, screaming (yes, because we have a feisty 2 year old), Legos, trains, dolls, play-doh, books, gadgets, desserts, quilts, and kindess.
Psalm 27:4-One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.
Wow, re-reading this I was all over the place today. Well, I guess it's what "home" means to me.
