“…May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels.”
– Psalm 122:6-7
Guys, it’s my favorite time of year!
Ready? Set. Hike!
This morning, I donned my football jersey, and then spent the rest of the morning watching the Red River Rivalry with my family. Things got a little…Loud.
But, that’s how football goes, right?
It’s one of the beauties of home.
And, one of the beauties of fall.
When I picture my future home – whether living alone in my current state, or living with a beautiful blessing of family – I almost always picture it fall time…
Fantastic smells. Fun movies, shows, & specials. Cozy reading weather. Longer nights. And, football in the background: College on Saturdays. NFL Sundays after church.
Great food, yummy baked goods, and cozy times all around.
And, it brings me a sense of peace. The thought always makes my heart feel cozy & happy.
Because, I know that no matter what, my Abba will also be in my midst – whether alone or with family – my Abba will always be in my home, too.
Which is why, when I picture my future with a possible “him”, I don’t just picture watching football together. I picture serving God together, loving God together.
Because homes are for cozy, lovely times with those you love. (And, so is fall ♥)
