I used to attend a Home Group at this wonderful woman's home. Her house exudes warmth, love, and peace. You just feel and know that Jesus lives there with them.
I hope that people feel and know that Jesus lives at my home too. My home is just messier and more cluttered than hers. Mine is cluttered with more than stuff - some of my clutter is people. She and her husband are empty nesters.
I have a 3 1/2 year old with indulgent grandparents and that means lots of toys.
I know there are things I can do to make my home more inviting, cozy and comfortable. I especially want these things for Surferman. I want him to be happy to be home. I want him to long for his castle. I want to provide him a peaceful refuge from the things of this world.
Please pray for me - for my attitude. Often by the time Surferman gets home I am wanting to be rescued; to be taken away from it all. I want to have dinner ready, the table set, Grom showered and ready for bed, the house picked up. Lord, help me, please.
