Over the years I've sketched many homes, ranging from 700 to 7000 sq ft , but I must admit, the ones I've done for Habitat for Humanity have a special place in my heart! As a former board member and co-chair of Women Build in my local community, I've been able to experience first hand how much it means to these families to have a home of their own. I love to donate to Silent Auctions for fundraising, and for several years, I was also thrilled to lend my art to their Christmas Card sales.
As we gather this weekend with our family and friends, please remember the classic phrase:
"Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home."
It's not the lights or the wreath on the door... or even the stash of presents under your tree...it's the love thats found on the inside that makes a house a home.
This Christmas, with this in mind... I am reminded of and especially thankful for The Manger... a humble beginning for a tiny baby that would grow up to become our Savior and King.
Joy to the World!!
