I am so excited to start week one of Women Living Well's Fall Challenge - Making Your Home a Haven. This weeks challenge is:
Go buy a large candle and light it everyday in your home. Each time the candle catches your eye, say a prayer for peace in your home.
I love this idea! I went to Bed Bath and Beyond today, and bought three new fall scented candles. Tonight, I lit the Yankee Candle Autumn Wreath 22oz Jar. It smells amazing! Hubby noticed it and liked the smell immediately. And I love the idea of saying a prayer for peace in our home each time I see it. I placed in on our bar in the kitchen, because it is the center of our home.
Please take a moment to visit Courtney's blog and read about the two types of homes that we create as women. I do not have children yet, so I can't relate to all of these, but I definitely recognize that it is me, my actions, and my attitude that set the tone for our home. And, I want it to be a home that my husband cannot wait to get home to, feels comfortable in, and sees as his haven. I'm working on it :)
I want to be like the Proverbs 14:1 woman that Courtney references, "The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands, the foolish one tears hers down".
