Two (simple) reasons why I love being at home

November 8, 2012

1.  We get to do life together; all day, everyday. This morning around the breakfast table we had a Holy Spirit inspired conversation about the bible being our foundation for living; how we deal with temptation and what the Word of God says about what we watch and read.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phil 4:8

We talked, we shared stories, we prayed and we took much longer over breakfast…because we can. These conversations are not planned; they’re not part of a devotional or a curriculum; they’re born out of love and T.I.M.E spent around my children; time eating, sharing life and loving Jesus together. These conversations are precious, transforming and eternal. 2.  My children get to grow up around each other When I see the way Nyah (10) is with her little sister Sienna-Raine (21 months) I can’t imagine them being apart all day; I’m not saying we have sibling perfection in our house; oh no, not at all – but they get to learn all those lessons within the safety of these four walls. Every day they get an opportunity to learn about serving each other, showing grace, dealing with conflict, team work, patience, keeping a short account – of which many of these lessons I haven’t had a chance to learn until adult life! The learning is observed by this gracious mama (smile), and we know when each child needs some ‘quiet’ time or a solo-date with Mum or Dad but for the most part we get on with life together; becoming more like Jesus because of it!

Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life. 1 Thess 4:11

Why do you love being at home?
