Textures of Home.. Proverbs 24:3-4..

Good Morning my dears....
This morning as I arose (smile) and made my way out to the kitchen to begin my day I passed by the doors into the livingroom. 
It was so cheerful with the sun shining in the Eastern windows that I thought I would share it with you all..
So ... please come on in... I am just going to post some textures that are in this room for you to see... ok? 

















Those were just a few close ups of this room.. 
Not everything is perfect but it is home...

When Sammi and I opened the patio door (which has not been opened all Winter)...

This is what we saw.
 There is still snow out in the old orchard but the flower beds near the house are clear and starting to come up...Spring is here..
Isn't God good?
 There is no place on earth that I would rather live than here in this province of New Brunswick.. 
I thank Him for that....


I thought I would share a little verse in Proverbs with you....

By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiuful treasures. 
Proverbs 24:3

Of course this verse is not referring to this house that Terry and I live in or the one you live in....
But to our bodies which are the temples of the Lord...
If we will study His Word and learn to apply the wisdom that he gives us there then we build up the house we live in. 
When we do this we begin to understand all that He has done for us and we establish our goings on the Word of God.. 
 We begin to apply His Word to every facet of our lives..
With this knowledge of Him as a child of God then our lives are filled with spiritual riches such as love, joy and peace but also healings, a sound mind and material provisions that we need. 
He also gives us wisdom to help us with our families and marriages and all in our daily lives.. 
When we accept Jesus Christ into our hearts He builds this home.
Then the textures of our lives which is so diversified with home, family, friends, work and so much more becomes centred upon Him..
We then realize  that this house is built on nothing less than Jesus Christ and His Righteousness..
No matter what prevails we are safe from the storms of life and we can lean on Him....

He is the Answer today....

Thank you dear ladies for stopping by... I love to hear from you..
                         
                                         GOD BLESS...
