Your Home - A Sanctuary

Do not change yourselves to be like the people of this world, but be changed within by a new way of thinking. Then you will be able to decide what God wants for you; you will know what is good and pleasing to him and what is perfect. ~Romans 12:2~

My Child,

>Though you are surrounded by the morals of a corrupt world, your home can be a sanctuary of grace and peace. Determine to create for yourself and your loved ones an atmosphere of hope and harmony where people are valued, friendships are nutured, and my name is honored.

Fill your home with the blessings of life - flowers blooming, children laughing, a table spread with good things to eat. Make it a refuge, a safe place, where it's okay to be real and acceptable to admit weakness - a place where prayer binds up the raveled edges of each day's disappointments. In your home, may my words be welcomed and may my Son be your ever-present guest.

Your Father and His,
