The House

~ I took this picture of our home tonight - Sept. 19, 2010

It's been five years.

Our neighbor Wilma reminded me of this tonight as we sat on our driveway and watched our children play badminton in the evening light.  Five years ago today, we moved into this home.  What a wonderful day that was!

And what a wonderful five years it's been.  Although we didn't literally build this house, we have built a home in it, continuing the tradition of lovingly raising a family that my parents began in it.  During these five years, we have experienced life, in all its richness of varying emotions, in this space marked out by these brick walls.  And while we've been here, the Lord has built our house, so to speak, by doubling the number of our children!

Happy anniversary, dear house!  Thank You, Lord, for the blessing that it's been to us; and thank You most of all for Your presence in it.
