As the cold air moves in, I am increasingly thankful for shelter, a home and roof to keep out the elements. Not only does our home protect us, but it encircles us in arms of togetherness, cozy times on the couch or snuggled in beds. It is a place where the aroma of cooking food and scented candles invite us in after we've been in the world, a place of comfort and love and relaxing. A house is shelter, a home is something created and longed for. Thank you Father for our home!
