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 nearly six-acre tract of land, this farmhouse, this domain—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.

A Thought to Ponder...



"A cupful brimful of sweet water cannot spill even one drop of bitter water, no matter how suddenly jolted."  

~ Amy Carmichael


 ~ Read James 3 for the heart of the matter. ~

  1. Thank you for this reference today, Cheryl. It reminds me of Psalm 19:14 ♥

  2. It also is inline with what our pastor was speaking on tonight from I Cor 13. I love a good Amy Carmichael quote! Have a good week.

  4. What a wonderful thought! Isn't Amy Carmichael the 'White Queen of the Cannibals' lady? I remember reading that book when I was a kid.

  5. Ah yes, the untamable tongue!! I am doing a study on James this year. It has been so convicting to dwell on the life or death that can come from our tongue. Love this quote, yet another sweet reminder to check what is in my heart. tammy
