from home to house

four walls make a room
many rooms make a house
empty or filled
a house is a house
furniture begins to personalize
staking a claim
but still a house
just furnished well

the splashes 
art, pillows, collectibles
is what we use
to begin creating home
our insides displayed
in an external manner

this house has been home
a picture of who I have become
layered with sheep
pictures of Jesus holding lambs
crosses, candles
needlework done by my mother's hand
plants that thrived at Rick's touch

these are the things
I am packing with love
storing away
like memories safely filed

we have found people
who love this collection of rooms
and pray that they will splatter them
with new life, their lives

while we plan to learn
that our true home
is where ever He takes us

wrapped in His plans
His purposes
and His unfailing love
we shall move on

Yes, because God’s your refuge,
    the High God your very own home,
Evil can’t get close to you,
    harm can’t get through the door
