diary of home

 ~ ~ ~


Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt,

so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.

Colossians 4:6

It doesn't matter what kind of a house you live in, how cute your curtains are,

or what kinds of crafts or dinners you make for your family, if your words are not seasoned

with love. 

Who wants to be in a house where the inhabitants are using words that are not kind, or caring, 

or loving toward one another. 

All of us have good days and bad days. Some days we are stressed out, or sad, 

or hungry for comfort that we are not receiving. 

These are the times for communicating with our loved ones with honor and respect.

These are the times to say, "I'm feeling down. I need your blessing."

Or, "What can I do to help? You seem a little off."

We should think of our bodies as temples, or houses. 

Each of us a living embodiment working together for the good of all. 

And so our words should matter. They should be reflective of ourselves, our homes, 

and the world we want to be living in.

We should always try to think before we speak.


Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths,

but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion,

that it may give grace to those who hear.

Ephesians 4:29

  1. ...what a fabulous portrait, your grandson?

  2. Your words are special today, and the Ephesians verse I liked a lot. Some days it's hard not to curse now and again, but we keep trying haha. That is the most wonderful photo I've seen in a long time. What a treasure to keep always.

    Have a blessed week.


    1. The first picture of the bird is the California Quail. It's actually our state bird, and I see them around here everywhere. They are funny birds to watch, and the little feather on its head is actually a cluster of six feathers. They are ground birds, and I seldom see them fly. But they come in groups, and often walk on my lawn to get where they're going. : )

  3. Love this, and that is a great picture! I hope you have a wonderful week!

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
