A Home

A dear blogging friend, (hi Mere!) tagged me to do the following: tell me the definition of a home, and your perspective, in fact, make it your post for a day! Include bible verses, quotes, some one elses or your own, leave me a comment to tell me you're in!

So here is my post about a home.

First off I am sure that a home means different things to different people. My definition and perspective is this. It is the place that God has put me in charge of to make a comfy, relaxing, safe, enjoyable place for our family and friends to find refuge. It is hopefully always inviting no matter if there there are dirty dishes in the sink, or the floors need mopping. It is a place where if you are family or a friend, you know you are always welcome. That someone will be here with open arms, a shoulder, a hug, a cup of coffee, glass of tea, soft drink, cool water. And since I am a true cajun, I will try to feed you something. LOL

Titus 2:5 To be discrete, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

This is one of my favorite verses.

The quote "home is where the heart is" has always meant alot to me. I think if our hearts are in our homes, then we will want to do for our families, as God intended.

Ok, now I challenge anyone reading this that haven't been tagged by Mere, to tell here or on your blog what a home means to you. If you do it on your blog, let me know so I can check it out!
