                                              By Wisdom a House is Built       
Proverbs 24: 3-4
3 By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; 
4 through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.

Reading this scripture provides me with comfort and joy. My home is a humble one we are not home owners rather renters. Most of our furniture is used and well loved by other's. I
 shop at Thrift Stores often making my home special on a limited budget. As I may have shared before we are small business owners a one income family of 6.  Reading material has always been considered by me to be a treasure. Books can teach you provide travel, fantasy, and adventure.  I have a few shelves with books that have been found at thrift stores, dollar tree's and given to me by my family. My sister just came by today with some of the clothes her sons have grown out of and books for my children to read that had been well read by her children. Blessings rain down in so many ways. While our treasures may not be grand nor exquisite they are wonderful. Keeping in mind that rare and wonderful treasures could be a child's photo or art work the Bible laid open to one of your favorite verses. A hand made quilt or crocheted blanket. Pillows fashioned out of left over material or quirky table mats. Even a well kept house that is warm and welcoming to all. In my season of life a well kept house is laughable. I have young children. My days consist of a array of toys to dodge as I walk. Never ending piles of dish's that compliment the piles of laundry. Crumbs on the floor that never end. The treasures get blurry in the mist of the flurry of family and life.
Take heart for every season there are changes. My seasons are gently changing and things will change  and so will yours.  My beautiful rare treasures are my children's laughter and smiles my husbands love and our good health. I couldn't ask for more. Although, a well kept house would be great,lol I hope you enjoyed my friends.
