I've seen so many lovely homes, beautifully decorated. . . I see families with money for gifts, nice clothes and expensive food. More and more families are expecting larger homes with more conveniences. They want more than one bathroom, double sinks, and plenty of small appliances to do all the hard labor in the kitchen. Many homes today have dishwashers, bread machines and food processors. But none of these items were in Grandmother's home. None of these items were in my childhood home. None of these items are in my current home.
There can be simplicity and joy in a humble home. Families with very little can still have a nice life. They can have happy homes, with a small purse and few possessions.
Inside their basic dwelling should be diligence, hard work, love, and service. . .
Sometimes I wonder if the humblest of homes, with loving hearts of great faith in God, are the sweetest homes of all.
