What’s your home like?
We are getting closer to experiencing the empty nest, but that transition will not exert its full-force thanks to the arrival of a grandchild before our last child flies the coop. Regardless of how all that plays out, it’s a time in my life to reflect a little about how we did "home."
The picture is pretty close to what we intended to do. One key element in our home was/is the table and simple meals shared together with a loving prayer. No TV; no distractions. Our intention was/is to reflect the love of God and his way of dealing with us. We want our kitchen table to reflect the communion table.
Centering a home on a table that reflects the unconditional of God allows it to be a place of peace and joy, a place of security. It’s not easy, but with God’s help and intentional practices, like the ones pictured, it can be done.
May God bless your home.
