Making a House a Home Challenge-Week 1
I'm not sure that my work here is going to win any prizes, but for me, it's about changing my perspective on how I view our home. It's not just about keeping the house clean and tidy (although, trust me with eight people on the Ark, we do our share in that department!), but it's about simple ways that we can be good stewards of that which God has generously given to us. It's about creating a home that gives glory to God in all of the little nooks and crannies, not in big ways, but in deliciously small ones.
Here's my first itty bitty area on the agenda.
It's the little corner and backsplash behind my kitchen sink. Usually, it's a graveyard for things that don't quite fit in the sink. But not anymore! As I spend quite a bit of time at this location, I decided to make it a little more, shall we say, inspirational? I had the big girls fill a planter I had with African Daisies (how appropriate, right?) and then I grabbed a few lovely and divinely inspired items I had around the house for my eyes to rest on frequently.
The first is a statue of the Holy Family. I've written about this much loved statue on the Ark before.
Here's the attractive plaque given to me by one of my thoughtful friends, showing a most favorite scripture.
Coming next week...a frugal find on a set of dishes inspires me beyond the pale of paper plates!
