As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Words to Ponder


"If Christmas does not mean everything in July, then in truth it means nothing in December. If I need a cooling in the weather and the sight of familiar decorations to cause my heart to leap like a lamb- if my heart cannot celebrate today as I consider the birth of our Lord Jesus, then Christmas reveals a problem in me."
~ Michael Card


Thanks to my son Ryan for introducing me to this quote.  I have been pondering this thought all week...

  2. Christmas is not a day on the calendar. It is a frame of mind and heart and spirit all year through. I really like this quote. How neat when our children teach us...adult to adult.

  3. Good quote. Christmas, it's meaning, is in our hearts all year, It makes sense if we can unravel all the commercialism and get down to the true meaning,
