I got this immediate feeling that "now, it (the porch) is complete".
As I looked to the left I saw the little table and chair set that had been at my parent's home when both of them were living.
It's nothing fancy. It's plastic in fact. It has good memories. I can visualize them sitting outside in these after working in their yard.
As I look to the right, I see the rocker set that I've been "porching" in for almost 2 months now.
My sister and brother in law gave these to me from off their porch/patio before I left Midland. Lots of good times were shared on that patio with them.
So now my porch has pieces of my family on it, pieces of my life on it, pieces of my loves on it. And now they are "home".
New International Version (NIV)
A Prayer for the Ephesians14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being.
Encourage One Another, continuing the journey on fresh paths.
Blessings and love...
