Heart Of Home

Lord, let our house be something more
Than just a shelter with a door;
May its windows glow with light,    
Shedding radiance through the night.
Not just a glitter of glass and chrome,
But give it the "feel" of a happy home.                                  

Let it have flowers, a well-loved book,
Soft cushions in a quiet nook.


 May it be more than downey bed,
  Or snowy cloth with silver spread;
  Lend it some smiles, warm sympathy.
 With kindly thought, true charity - 

 That all may recall, though far they roam,
 That God was there - in the heart of home

                                              Christine White

I so agree with these sentiments. I want the same for my place as well.
