Psalms 127:1 (NASB)
[127:1] Unless the LORD builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the LORD guards the city,
The watchman keeps awake in vain.

This weeks verse hits home for me as I remember the brokenness that filled our home before we dedicated our lives to God. Chris was constantly gone for one work related thing after another and so I was I. I was busy completing a degree (which I don't think I will ever use) and navigating the waters of my career choice while Cheyenne was in daycare for at least 10 hours a day. We may have lived under one roof but we were not a family. These days we are surviving on one income and Chris is home everyday at 5:10 p.m. The best part is we love being home. We love being there for our children. Laughter echos through out the house. We may not have much but we are so thankful for what we do have. The watchmen of our home are mine and my husband's hearts and we center it purposefully looking up towards the heavens. God is the builder of this home, He's filled it with His presence, joy, peace, and all the excitement of watching our children grow to serve and love Him as well as their parents. Take a moment and watch the video. Post comments please.
