~Phillip's "office" is in our dinning room/living room so he's always with us when he's working on newsletters, his Bible institute and our mission work.~
Kelly Stamper and I were emailing each other and she made some comments on the home, that inspired me (with God's help) to write the following poem!
WHAT IS A HOME?
A home is made up of more than just four walls,
it's love, homemade cookies, kids playing with balls.
No matter your style, you can make a home,
And you can make one, wherever God may have you "roam". (like Colombia, Romania, Mexico, etc. =)
A home is not the latest fashion, and all the latest decorations,
It's LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER and GOD, and hearts full of dedication!
It doesn't have to look like your neighbor's house, we're not all alike,
You may decorate in antiques and they in black leather and "BIKES".
The point is that "Daddy and Mommy" Love each other more each day,
And love their children too, lovingly teaching them to obey.
Spending time together playing games, reading, and just chillin'
Or going shopping together, not necessarily to buy, just millin'.
Eating our meals together around the TABLE...as a FAMILY...
Not each one in their own chair, reading a novel...you see!
Giving each other hugs, and asking "How was your Day"?
And taking time daily to read the Bible together, sing and PRAY!
So, no matter if you can decorate like Martha Stewart or not,
Or if you don't cook well at all, and always burn the food in your pot!
Cheer up, God made you Y-O-U, and LOVES YOU JUST LIKE YOU ARE,
So, hug your family, spend time together, and YOU'LL BE THEIR STAR!!!
Each home will be different, that's how God made us...
To love each other, and to not to fuss. =)
The devil HATES happy Christian Homes filled with God's love...
So, let's love one another, and help each other get to our Heavenly HOME above.
