Su Casa...mi Casa (His house...my house)

As many of you know, we've been somewhat nomadic for a year...staying here and there and everywhere! While we have been enjoying the same house now for the last 8 months...still...it isn't our home. Honesly, I've been getting impatient to have "my own space". I find myself thinking..."it is my right to have a home."

However, yesterday God reminded me that it isn't my "right" to have a home...a house (a home) is a gift or a tool given to me from God. This gift or tool should be used to bring Him glory. A good reminder....especially because today, we are supposed to sign the rental contract and get the keys to our next "gift or tool". We are, without a doubt, excited! May we use this home as a place to share God's love with others!

Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. Deut. 6: 5-9
