We had a house blessing/dedication on Saturday, 7 March 2009.
I can understand now why some will consider it ceremonial.
But to me the meaning behind the intention was beautiful.
That even in the building of the house, God intended it to be.
In the strength of the builders, God intended it to be.
Not just our decision to purchase, but the decision to build,
God intended it to be.
How far beyond was His intention to be...
That no matter what the world throws at us,
God has given us a safe haven...physically.
Where angels guard the house.
Where we will build in the ways of God.
And it was especially more wonderful,
that the closest people whom I love the most were there.
To pray together with us.
To worship together with us.
(The high ceilings certainly made the worship sound so glorious)
I have no words to ever express how gracious is our God,
and how wondrous are His ways.
Thank you guys (you know who you are) for making our house a home.
I thank God each day for my 'extended' family.
