Family should offer a safe haven cushioned with hospitality.
Along with security our home must reflect the warmth of hospitality and kindness. Think of the endearment conveyed when welcomed with a warm hug. Hospitality offers courtesy, receptiveness and graciousness.
A safe place to find loyalty. A safe place to find strength. A safe place to refresh.
I love what Barbara Bush vocalized, “To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there.” Home can embrace the best of who we are and the finest we can become in the future. Sometimes the best investments are time and presence. Strong steps toward forging a safe haven demand intentionality and purpose. Courage advances forgiveness. Boldness builds protection. Shelter forges confidence. Create your own safe haven.
Hospitality. Encouragement. Welcome.
Home cultivates hope in all those who enter. Willingness to be transparent blesses all who enter home’s open door. How wonderful to know that “home” can be accessed easily. Whether physically being at home or calling “home”, this comfortable, reassuring sense brings unobstructed access to comfort. In days with impassable obstacles, this open door fosters serenity along with plausible solutions. Helen Keller, a woman who overcame significant struggles suggests, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” What motivation to create a loving home which invigorates those who enter its open door!
