WHAT IS A HOME?

A HOME is a house with love inside. It takes many things to make a HOME: an attic filled with yesterdays, rooms filled with today and children filled with tomorrow.

A HOME is four walls glued together with the magic of the past; of tears and laughter, sorrow, joy, hopes and dreams.

A HOME is a sanctuary for the troubled, a friendly port for the lonely, a beacon for the wanderer.

A HOME is built with bricks, mortar, lumber, nails and concrete as well as devotion and love and courtesy and courage.

A HOME is as warm as the glow of a fire in the fireplace and as serene as a cat napping in the sun on a window sill.

A HOME is a front door that has known many a happy greeting as well as a lot of sad fare-wells.

A HOME is a nursery that has known a child's cry in the night and parlor that has heard a lover's sigh.

A HOME is a boy's bedroom with pennants and posters on the wall, a ballglove in the corner and the stereo turned up loud.

A HOME is a happy den that has known the talk of friends and a fireplace that has filled a room on a winter's night with a comfortable glow.

A HOME is many things: a bookcase filled with strange and wonderful tales, a carpet worn with the scuff of little shoes, a lawn that has known the print of bare feet cooled by the summer sprinkler.

But most of all...

A HOME is a house with four walls held together by the love of and service for Christ, our Savior.
