“What is home? My favorite definition is "a safe place," a place where one is free from attack, a place where one experiences secure relationships and affirmation. It's a place where people share and understand each other. Its relationships are nurturing. The people in it do not need to be perfect; instead, they need to be honest, loving, supportive, recognizing a common humanity that makes all of us vulnerable.”
-Gladys Hunt, Honey for a Child's Heart: The Imaginative Use of Books in Family Life
As we reach out to a hurting and broken world, may we cultivate a nurturing and soul-filling home. It's not about decor or the size of your space, but about the kindness and care that fill the walls. May we ask the Lord to bring those into our homes who need to feel His love. And may we readily offer grace and patience to those living within it.
