About this blog

Be imitators of God, as dearly beloved children, and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God,” (Ephesians 5:1-2).

"Let us love.  Let our lives be a perpetual song of love for God first of all and for all human beings who suffer, love, and mourn.  Let keep joy live in us.  Let us be like the lark, the enemy of the night, who aways announces the dawn and awakens in each creature the love of light and life.  Let us awaken others to the spiritual life. "

Many of the ideas on this blog are simply my opinion and, thus, are of little consequence except what may be of interest to you -- the reader.  I don't hold anything in my blogs to be a standard for anyone else.  I write often of my faith, but my personal opinions should never be confused with Jesus' teachings or with the Word of God.   Neither should anyone confuse the study of home economics with what it means to be a Christian.  It is possible to be a follower of Christ and to see things differently regarding the home than I do.

What is not my opinion is that Jesus calls all of us to walk as he did.  

1 John 2:5 KJV But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know that we are in him. 1 John 2:6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. 

This year (2011) in my walk with God, I aim to be a student of Christ's love.  I love not because of anything in me, but because he first loved me.  I John 4:19.   Learning to love my home and family is a part of that journey.

I am far from my goal.  As Paul said, I leave what is behind and press on toward the goal.  I constantly reflect, repent, change and renew my thinking, seek advice, and,  most of all, surrender to the Lord's molding and 

This blog is a sequel to an earlier blog in which I studied home economics for one year.  I hope to build on and expand the concepts I learned.  I'm teaching myself as I go, and I hope you will come along on the journey with me and even help by commenting on what you've learned and what works for you.

Happy Home Keeping!
