Welcome to the Making Your Home Sing Monday meme! Every day you are doing something to make your house into a home for yourself and your family (if you have one). My point with each Monday post is, what are you doing or going to do today to make your home sing?It can be an attitude or an action. Motivation, our attitude, baking, encouraging our husband or children (if we have either one), organization, cleaning, saving money....the opportunities are endless.
I'm not trying to rush anybody or anything but I can't believe that January is nearly gone. I mean, seriously?
I love a lot of light which is fortunate because we have a lot of windows, especially in the living room. Yesterday I was looking out the window walls and I just had to call my son to come look.
It was January and yet you wouldn't know it by the weather. The sun was streaming in and it was beautiful. I said to my son "Just think, soon it will be spring and summer and it will look like that all the time." Well, all the time except for the rain.
Sometimes we have "rain" in our lives and we forget that it's helping us to grow. Sometimes we have rain and we get mad and we storm and we rage and we forget that we don't have to live in the rain.
We forget that we can live inside, where it is always sunny and warm and bright. We forget that we can live inside where our families are, and make beautiful memories, hold and snuggle with our babies, and hear our children laugh and make our husbands smile.
We forget that we don't have to live in the rain.
Are YOU living in the rain this week? If you are, come in from the cold. Come in from the constant, wet rain that dampens your heart and puts weights on your feet and makes you feel cold inside.
Make the choice to let the rain do its job, knowing that the beauty of springtime is right around the corner. The storm may rage but the storm is not you. You don't have to rage.
When I was a teenager I wrote:
Keep walking. Don't stop.
You've got the sun (Son) behind you and the rainbow (God's promises) before you.
Remember that you don't have to live in the rain. The storm may rage but you don't have to live in the storm. Come inside.
