Proverbs 3:17...



One of the most common comments I get when I post pictures of my home is that it seems so peaceful.
I love that.
I pray that it's not only visually peaceful and calming,
but that it's full of the peace of God.

This verse in Proverbs is referring to wisdom.
The ways of wisdom are pleasant and her paths are full of peace.
If I want my home to be peaceful, must be peaceful.
If I want to be a pleasant person, a person of peace, 
then I must seek to have God's wisdom and live in God's ways.
I want God's wisdom.
I want my ways to be pleasant.
I want my paths to be full of God's peace.

  1. Dear Elizabeth
    Yes, dear friend, this is the cry of every human heart; to experience love and peace. It is so sad that along the ways of life the enemy of our hearts, steals so many souls and uses them for his evil ways!

  7. I love the photo. Just this morning I read this simple salutation in 2 Peter 1:2 & it has stayed with me all day ,"Grace & peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God & of Jesus our Lord." I was your neighbor at The Weekend Brew. Have a great weekend.
    Blessings,

  9. This is my heart's cry. I cannot say I am a peace carrier in this season of my life, but I am striving to be a person of peace. I believe a woman sets the tone for her home. I want mine to be one of peace, love and unity. Blessings!
