MAKE YOUR WORD MY HOME

I long to make the Word my home.  To wander through each room, appreciating the details, remembering each person who has entered and the memories they have left there.  I long to reach for Bible verses as easily as I reach for plates and cups in the cupboard.  I want to see God revealed as clearly as the sun breaking through when I pull back the curtains each morning.  And to rest quietly in scripture, enjoying the same stillness and peace of a house at night with children dreaming in their beds and my husband by my side.
 I hope for the day that the Word of God is my refuge and strength in the same way that my home is the place I start from and the place to which I always return.
 Amen.
