Making my Home a Haven

I am not perfect by any means (just ask my hubby or children) but I truly desire to make my Home a Haven.  I do not want Jesus to be a guest in my home I want Him to be a permanent resident.  I want my my home to be a place where Jesus will abide.  I have so much room for improvement to make my home perfect and it probably never will be.  My hubby and children ore my Mission Field.  If I have a clean house all the time but my children do not know about Jesus, then I have missed the whole goal.  "Were building temples where Jesus will abide."  I do have a goal though, I want my home to reflect Christ.  I want my children to look back at their days as being a child and remember all the little special things Mama did for them or with them in mind.    This is the decoration on our window ledge the children had fun putting the little leaves all around the bottom.  Alaina just thought they were so adorable.

A song prayer from my heart for my children's sake.  I could not find the music but here are the words.

HER CHILDREN SHALL ARISE
AND CALL HER BLESSED
Proverbs 31:28

SONG OF REFLECTION:
WE’RE BUILDING TEMPLES
Words by Kathie Hill
Music by Gary McSpadden and Bill George
[as sung by The Talleys]

This child fast asleep looks so warm and content as I watch over her bed
But I need to think back on the day we have spent to all I didn’t say
Did she feel safe and know that I care - did I say the things that made her feel loved?
For my life and my words form the image - of the person she will one day become

Chorus:
We’re building temples for Jesus to live in
Rooms warm and welcome where He’ll reside
These children are our own
But some day when they’re grown
We pray they’ll be the temples where Jesus will abide

Lord help us to build a foundation of trust knowing that we love them so
With walls of pure faith that will stand against the winds of doubt that blow
Let Your love be the roof that covers their lives and protects them from rains of defeat
Help me mold in their hearts open windows where the light of your salvation will stream

The Candle is a reminder to Pray for Peace in my home.

A very timely post for me. I have been feeling convicted to put more effort into raising my children and pay less attention to the world and its attractions. My home should be the safest place for my children to be, and where thye feel the most love. It's quite a challenge but I want to try my best.
