fmf :: provide

... . ... ..... . .. ... ... .. ... .. .. ... .. . .. ... . .
A smile is a light in the window of your face to show your heart is at home.
The theme of my heart!
Being and feeling at home!

I pray that my face would show this blessing of provision
that I know to be true.

This was the continual and resolved prayer of our hearts for a long time - as we looked for housing.  A new home - a place to call our own.  He did just that.  He provided.  This past summer - mid June, as a matter of fact, if you're new to following our blog and story.

But... I am going to have to be honest.  This house.  It still doesn't quite feel like home.  My smile isn't always there.  While I'm grateful and again, I know HE has provided and met our (every?) need... its the "want" that still gets in the way.  You can read more, starting HERE!

Would you pray for me?

~ writing and joining up with Five Minute Friday - writing for five minutes on the prompt that was given.  Today's word was provide.



  1. Thank you for sharing your story of how God has provided your new home. I think the want gets in the way for many of us, myself included. I hope you have a lovely weekend.

  2. Yes, my friend, I will pray for you. We moved here about 18 or 19 years ago and honestly, Bevy, it took me a couple of years before this house felt like home. I understand my friend. xo

  3. I moved about a year and a half ago. My husband had always wanted to live in his grandparents home and I wanted nothing to do with it. My heart changed some and I was okay with moving by the time it came to that, but still something less than thrilled. And that first winter!- I hated living here. I was talking once to my aunt and she said that of course it will not feel like "home," there are no memories here. That helped me so much! I quit expecting to love it and quit feeling guilty that it didn't feel as cozy and comforting. The past Christmas it was nice to remember last Christmas here, and it feels a bit more homey. This spring I still miss my old garden and wish mine here was better, but it is slowly getting more like home and, most of all, I realized that is ok. I have to give time to develop memories.

  4. Mmmmm.... The WANT Bug! I know that feeling and those thoughts!

    "Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him."
    James 1:12

    "But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you."
    Matthew 6:33
    I had to change my way of thinking and not turn my thoughts into desires. God knows.
    Praying for you!
