Welcoming Home

This week our family grows by four more souls.

We open our home and our hearts to my older brother, Lorn, Dory, Barrett & Audrey.

The playroom has been cleared out and prepared as an apartment of sorts for Uncle Lorn & Auntie Dory.

AbbySue has been over the moon with excitement to share her room with her beloved cousin, Audrey.

And sixteen year old Barrett will make the attic his own teenage getaway. (Ben said, "I won't be the only boy anymore!)

This Old House has space to spare...and I admit that when we first moved in, I was a bit resentful for the extra cleaning it has required. Still, Grace abounds, and we have been given so very much...more than enough. These things are not ours to keep...they are His to share. We are challenged and blessed.

Proverbs 3:27
"Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it."

Romans 12:13
"Contribute to the needs of the brethren, be given to hospitality." 

 Audrey's "room"
 Barrett's space
 Uncle Lorn & Auntie Dory's "apartment".
