Being Thankful for Our Homes

As I was preparing for this Post, my mind went back to my childhood and the home that I grew up in. There, I was taught principles and values that have, and will continue to, shape the direction of my life. The words of this song aptly describe my childhood home life: "We grew up hearing the stories about Jesus, Learning all about His death upon the Cross. We knew how much He loved us, by all the things you taught us, saying prayers beside our bed at night. We grew up hearing the stories about Jesus, and we're here in this Church because of you. We want our child to know Him, to love and adore Him. We want our child to know your Jesus too."

Our home was centered around Jesus. Everything we said and did was passed by His inspection first. As a result, we learned to love, respect and cherish Him as our parents did. Now, as we have established our own homes, and have begun our own families, those are the values and principles we want to pass on to our children.
My home (childhood and present), is a place to be thankful for. The values, principles, memories and love shared there cannot be taken for granted.

How about you? Is your home a place to be thankful for?
