What is "Building A House"?

"Building A House" is a blog about my journey back to God. The name comes from Proverbs 24:3-4 (The Message), "It takes wisdom to build a house, and understanding to set it on a firm foundation; it takes knowledge to furnish its rooms with fine furniture and beautiful draperies."

No, this isn't going to be a blog about making my house look pretty - at least not pretty on the OUTSIDE. But, I'm going to be working on getting my house
"pretty" on the SPIRITUAL side. I'm coming back from a pretty dark place in my life after losing 8 babies to miscarriage. This blog is about my journey back
to the Lord.

Proverbs 20:2-3, 7

"Quick-tempered leaders are like mad dogs - cross them 
and they bite your head off. It's a mark of good character 
to avert quarrels, but fools love to pick fights." 
Proverbs 20:2-3 (The Message)

Yup... tonight, I was a quick-tempered leader. Please Lord... help me have better character and not be so quick to react to my kids' misbehavior!

"God-loyal people, living honest lives, 
make it much easier for their children." 
Proverbs 20:7 (The Message)

Yup... if I had been putting God first tonight, I would have made it much easier on my kids. But, because I wasn't patient, I missed an opportunity to parent with grace. Thank God for HIS perfect grace which covers my sins - and for a humble heart that can seek forgiveness from my family!
