We remember the sacrifices that enabled us to be free!
In Proverbs (24:3), King Solomon wrote: “Through wisdom, a house is built, and through understanding, it is established.” Making wise decisions as a married couple is an essential component in allowing your home to be life-giving and not draining. It is so incredibly important that both spouses, individually and together, make every effort to do the wise thing. Repeatedly.
God states that if we ask for wisdom, he will give it. (James 1:5) What a game changer that can be when we are at wit’s end and then suddenly we experience clarity. Your mind felt muddled, and now it does not.
My husband and I have moved 20 times in 32 years of marriage. To say that our grown children or we have struggled to call any place “home” is an understatement. For those of you who have frequently moved as a family, you understand what I’m saying.
When my boys were young, and finances were tight, I often said the two things that were non-negotiables were nutritious food and good books. And back before there was something called a “Kindle,” there were only two types of books, paperback or hardbound. To last through three boys, I decided to buy hardbacks.
