Inside These Walls...

You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings. ~ Psalm 23:5

I've spent this week reflecting. I have a lot to be thankful for. This is something I will never get tired of expressing or discussing. My children are happy and healthy. Their laughter and joy "overflows my cup"! My husband rocks! He is a great provider and father and the best thing about him...he always makes me laugh!

This world is filled with so much hurting and pain. It is so hard to let it suck you in. But, in the midst of it all, I love walking through the doors of my small home in the suburbs and being embraced with the love it holds! {all the love it holds!}

I have a saying on my wall that says: "Family: One of God's Masterpieces."  We embrace all that God has for us in the beauty of His creation outside our front doors, but what about the beauty behind those doors? Tucked away inside those four walls of your home? Talk about a work of art!

I need to slow down and start enjoying all that my little home has to offer. I need to explore my creativity with my kids and watch their imaginations flow. I need to turn off the TV and Twitter and just sit with my husband, on a Tuesday night, and simply talk! As I get older, and somewhat wiser, I am realizing more and more everday just what is truly important. My family is second on the list, right after my Heavenly Father!

My prayer would be for you to spend some quality time with your family this weekend and watch your cup overflow!


We love because he first loved us. ~ 1 John 4:19
