~Building My Home~

Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands. ~Proverbs 14:1

I drew this little picture in my journal to remind me how important it is to build my home with good things.♥




 I believe if we follow the verses below, we will be well on our way to having well-built homes.

♥ Proverbs 31:10-31
♥ I Corinthians 13
♥ Galatians 5:22-23
♥ Ephesians 4:29-32
♥ Philippians 2:1-4, 14
♥ Philippians 4:8
♥ I Thessalonians 5:16-18
♥ I Timothy 6:6-8
♥ Titus 2:3-5
♥ I Peter 3:1-7

God bless you, and thank you for stopping by today! :-)

Take care,
~Melanie

  2. Oh, how beautiful! I love the picture you drew, and it is so nice to see a visual of what we should be pouring into our homes. The Lord is showing me more and more how the wife/mother truly does set the tone in the home. We have so much influence over our family, and it is so true that "if mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy"! Thank you for sharing your amazing talents with us here. You are such a dear blessing! Sending you much love, sweet friend. :)
