I am a big fan of Women Living Well Ministries, a blog about marriage, parenting and homemaking. They are currently doing a 31 Day Fall Challenge – Making Your Home a Haven.
No. It is not the things we have or the things we do not have that make our homes a haven. It’s you – my dear reader – you are the key to making the home a haven.
They go on to describe two different kinds of households. In the first household, the woman is distant. In the second household the woman is engaged. While I would like to say that I am like household #2 100% of the time, some of the examples in the first household…well, kinda made me stop and think. So, I am all in for this challenge! I don’t think there is anything more important than my family that I could invest my time and energy in….
Go buy an extra large candle and light a candle everyday in your home. I will be starting mine in the morning! But you can start yours at dinner time. Do what makes sense for your family. I will be placing mine in the kitchen – the main hub of my home. Each time the candle catches your eye, say a prayer for peace in your home.
