“The beauty of the house is order.

The blessing of the house is contentment.

The glory of the house is hospitality.

The crown of the house is Godliness.”

Author Unknown

I have never read a better definition of what home really means.
These beautiful words would look ever so lovely painted
on one of my walls
or hand painted into a hanging plaque.
I fell head over heals in love with this quote
after reading it for the first time.
It embodies exactly the way I want my home to
feel to my family as well as my friends.
What a remarkable reminder to read, of what home means
each & everyday!
I'm scrawled this quote onto a sticky note to hang on my mirror....
there it will stay,
until the day that I will hang it in a future home!

These words and actions are what makes a house a home. There really is a difference. Order, contentment, hospitality, and Godliness each require some type of action to make them so. I will glad to see them some day in your house that is your home......

Love this Becky!! Definitely inspiration for what I want my home to be.

Side note...I think I remember seeing that Cade did gymnastics over the summer (that is how long I've been reading without commenting!). We're thinking about starting Mallory, and thought a short summer program might be a good starter. Would you mind emailing me and letting me know where Cade took it and how y'all liked it? Thanks!! slbankhead at yahoo dot com
