What makes your home a home?

A recent study released by IKEA revealed that homes don't always feel like home, and some people reported feeling more at home in their cars. Does your home feel like home? What makes it like that? And if you don't feel at home there, why not? Where do you feel most at home?

Joh :) says: One of my favourite sayings is..

A house is built of brick and stone, a home is built on love alone.

Our home is built of brick but the inside is full of love.
Our home still needs cleaning and the clothes still need washing. There is ironing, and dusting and vacuuming, mopping and sweeping. There are beds to make and pillows to fluff, oh and the toilets need cleaning. The spiders find our home a great place to live so there are always webs to wipe down and dirty fingerprints to wipe off the walls.
Our home is just a normal place, with books in bookcases and accordians on show (maybe this isn’t normal).
Music flows from our home as our children practice their piano and sometimes it is sweet and sometimes not.
Sometimes you will hear raised voices – sorry we aren’t perfect, and then sometimes you will hear the soft voices of repentence and forgiveness.
If you are here for a meal you will hear the words of thanksgiving to our Heavenly Father who provides all our needs.
Hopefully, most of all you will know when you step into our home that this is where love abides. Love for each other and for those we care for.

My family may not be as religious but this verse is the true heart of my home
