Love in the Home

If I live in a house of spotless beauty with everything
in its place, but have not love, I am a
housekeeper–not a homemaker.

If I have time for waxing, polishing, and decorative achievements, but have not love, my children learn cleanliness—not godliness.

Love leaves the dust in search of a child’s laugh.

Love smiles at the tiny fingerprints on a newly
cleaned window.

Love wipes away the tears before it wipes up the
spilled milk.

Love picks up the child before it picks up the toys.

Love is present through the trials.

Love reprimands, reproves, and is responsive.

Love crawls with the baby, walks with the toddler,
runs with the child, then stands aside to let the
youth walk into adulthood.

Love is the key that opens salvation’s message to a
child’s heart. Before I became a mother, I took glory
in my house of perfection.

Now I glory in God’s perfection of my child. As a mother, there is much I must teach my child, but the greatest of all is love.
