Things Have Changed...

Sunday, May 12, 2019

I began my blog back in November 2010.  My life and blogging were much different back then...

I'm still a southern girl, very thankful for the blessings and grace that God has so richly shown to me.  Our children have grown older and are now both married.  My days are still filled with things close to my heart; 
my Lord,
family and friends,
tending the garden,
fluffing my nest,
remodeling our cabin,
and these days my heart is overflowing with so much love for our first grandson born this past December.
I still love family heirlooms, the old and well worn, and believe our homes reflect the heart of those who live there, telling the story of who we are, I still enjoy filling my home with special pieces having tugged at my heart.  I love nice things that are practical, comfortable, and keeping the budget in mind I still find that searching and patience go hand in hand.  Above all, I still hope our home is a warm and cozy place for all who enter.

My favorite quote and verse are still why my blog is named Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home:
"We shape our dwellings, and afterwards our dwellings shape us." 
Winston Churchill
"Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever."
Psalm 23:6

I truly believe we shape our dwellings and our families by all the hope, love and encouragement we invest in it and them.  I truly believe when Jesus is the Lord of our lives, His goodness will fill and guide our lives and one day when our life here on this earth ends...those who put our trust in Him...can look forward to dwelling with HIM in heaven, forever!

I have not been blogging about home d├ęcor and the like for some time now but have continued with my weekly blog party Amaze Me Monday.  I am so thankful for all the friends I've met along the way and for all who come to party here each week.  But, for now Amaze Me Monday will be on hold and I will post when I feel led to do so.  For me, right now, rather than the time it takes hosting parties, decorating, taking pictures, editing, and then putting a posting together...I am investing in the amazing people in my life.  They come first.  I'll still post, as I've invested a lot in this blog, and it holds a special place in my heart...but it is not my priority.

Much love to you all and I hope you will continue coming to see me, as I will you!  And follow on Instagram...I’ll be there!
