Becoming Centered

Everyday we visit families in trailers, houses, condos, duplexes, apartments, and the occasional mansion. We visit military homes and civilian homes. We visit broken homes and happy homes, clean homes and dirty homes. In my opinion, though, the most important aspect of a home-- regardless of physical condition or retail value-- is the personal and familial values that the home emits.

If you value your family, hang a family portrait in the entryway. If you value God, keep your Bible out on the coffee table. If you value the color yellow, hang yellow curtains! When family values are everyday elements of a home, the joy it brings to individual family members can be shared with others who enter the home.

What do you value? How do you share your values with other?
