Yesterday, I met the woman who will make our house her home.
Over the past few weeks, I have been confronting my possessions, making space to reveal the things that hold meaning.
I rediscovered the place we called home for a season, through the heartfelt excitement of another. The nourishment of nature, family, and belonging are just a few things we experienced here that will now welcome her home.
It is in the moments when cleaning and rearranging becomes a rhythmic meditation that you discover the richness home making.
The spirit of a home can be felt by all who cross its threshold.
Everyday Sacred: A Woman's Journey Home, Sue Bender (Author)
In Everyday Sacred: A Woman's Journey Home, Bender speaks to our longing to make each day truly count. She chronicles her struggle to bring the joyful wisdom and simplicity she experienced in her sojourn with the Amish back to her hectic, too-much-to-do days at home. Bender discovers for herself, and in the process shows us, that small miracles can be found everywhere - in our homes, in our daily activities and, hardest to see, in ourselves.
