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.

The Crown of the Home



The crown of the home is godliness;
The beauty of the home is order;
The glory of the home is hospitality;
The blessing of the home is contentment. 

~ Henry Van Dyke

I know I promised to show you the updates to our living room/dining room, and I still will, but it's been a busy week here with lots of comings and goings and I haven't had time to take photos! Next week, okay? 

Wishing you a grace-filled weekend! (Stay cool!)

  2. Love that quote! We will be visiting our new (one week old tomorrow) granddaughter later today. I'm exchanging homemade chocolate chip cookies for newborn cuddles. Children are a blessing of the Lord. :)

  7. Yes, next week or whenever. Life is so busy in summer. What a beautiful tablescape! The quote is a zinger for me...have not been home much to keep order and must take a day to do just that!

  11. A beautiful quote about all that the home is. Dorothy was so right when she said, "there's no place like home" :) Enjoy your week!
