Dwelling Place

Tis a simple dwelling place that I desire....one made of hands that loved the land it sits upon.....
As my husband and I drove around a couple of nights ago (because it was such a lovely evening)
I made the comment that if I had the large sums of money that many of the people who live in our surrounding area have....I would not build a "mc.mansion" like so many have....tis a simple dwelling place I desire....on acres of green earth with a bit of a running stream and a barn to store the sheep and maybe a horse or two.... isn't it funny how ones dwelling place can be so different.....some seeking notarity, joining the "those that have" club while others struggle just to have a roof over their heads......Lord, help me remember that "this world is not my home, I'm just a passin' through...my treasures are laid up, somewhere beyond the blue..." If I don't get a chance in this life to live in the simple dwelling of my dreams, I have put in an order with the Lord to make my mansion out of logs!!! Below are a few pictures of dwellings I would be happy to call home! Any way....just reflecting and hope it may stir up some thoughts of yours about where you dwell and why............blessings dear friends, Sarah

I agree whole-heartedly! Sometimes my boys ask why our house isn't as big as their friends' houses. I tell them that if our house was that big, I'd be busy cleaning rather than playing with them. If our house was that big, I wouldn't be able to find them and snuggle in a comfy cozy room. I'm not sure if they agree with me now, but hopefully some day they will understand :)

we pass by so many older homes in our area. they look so sad . folks have moved on to bigger places and forgot that happiness and love can be found in small homes too!!

Oh thank you for sharing your lovely photos. I, too, could happily dwell all of my days in any of those simple places.

There is an old hymn that I say was written just for me ... "Lord build me just a cabin in the corner of gloryland!"

Blessings,
Lea
