Make This Home A Peaceful Place

Bless this house,
O Lord, we pray.
Let your joy
shine here today.
Fill each corner
with Your grace.
Make this home
a peaceful place.
Let laughter ring
throughout the halls.
Bring harmony
to these four walls.
May all who enter
Be at rest as 
Your love touches,
every guest.


Poetry, especially sweet verses like this one which beckon to the peace and harmony that we desire within the walls of our homes, speaks to me on such a deep level. I'll be sharing more poems like these from a fairly vast collection I've curated over the years in the coming months. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

With that, I've been cross stitching a little more recently. I tend to go through "seasons", I suppose you could say, when I pick up my needle almost daily until for reasons I'm not even sure of, I realize one day that it has been weeks. But, beginning June 18, the Sunday just prior to the Summer Solstice, and through the end August, I'm instituting a practice I'm dubbing, Slowly Savoring Summer. At the heart of this endeavor is a need to quiet to my spirit, still my soul, reduce the stessors in my life.  I'll be doing that by intentionally focusing more on some of the things I love. I don't have all the pieces in place yet, just a lot of ideas on paper that I need to formulate into a plan, but if you're interested, stay tuned.  There's more to come.
