But the comments that I have loved the most when people visit our home or my blog is that our home feels so peaceful and happy. I'd like to think that you can 'see' God's presence in our home.
You've probably noticed that I have several things that have scripture on them around our house but I'd like to share with you some of the things in our home that have meaning to me and that reflect God's goodness to me.
I love this scripture. Many may imagine God as a disciplinarian and He is, for our own good, because He loves us. But He's also that Daddy that takes such joy in His children's accomplishments. This scripture always reminds me that God "likes" me.
You can also see the angel by our front door. It's since been painted an antique white.
But almost every thing in my house has a spiritual meaning to me. I'd like to share with you the reminders of God that are in our house that you may not realize.
One of my favorites is this picture of a door. I bought this when we lived in Virginia and have always thought it was beautiful.
I haven't shown you this picture before. I'm sorry this photo is so bad. It's very cloudy and rainy here today and I've been 'cheating' and using old photos.
You may have noticed the Fleur de Lis above our stove in our kitchen.
A dear friend gave it to me because she knew how much I love these. The Fleur de Lis represents the Trinity.
The three sheaves gathered together into one entity. The French had this symbol on all their shields and swords as a tribute to their faith in God.
I have several more things I'd like to show you but it is so dark here today that I'm not able to get any good pictures. We're supposed to get some sunshine tomorrow and I'm hoping to get some good pictures and share some other things that I see as Godly in our home that may surprise you.
We're also working on a new table top for Laura's house and some other projects that I hope to share soon.
Have a wonderful day!
love and blessings~
