by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Why Do Women Love Home?
Editor’s note: Many women do love their homes. But is it really true that it’s our only place, our best place to be? What’s so threatening about the idea that we belong many different places, based upon needs, stages of life, family and life?
Cooking and remodeling shows are some of the most popular TV shows for women. Why is this? It is because God gave women a heart for home. We all love the thought of a peaceful, beautiful home that is clean and tidy with delicious aromas of food cooking. We can decorate our homes differently according to our tastes. We fix the food our family loves. We can travel the world but when we finally climb into our own bed the first night after getting back home, we most likely will think, “There is no place likehome(sic)!” If you are blessed with a husband who wants you to be home full time, you get to live full time in your home. If you want to leave the home for any reason (shopping, friends, church, doctor, etc.) it’s mostly because you chose to leave your home, not that you have to, unless it’s an emergency.
Home is a place where you can forget about the evil going on in the world. You can shut down your television and the news and be thankful for a peaceful home. There’s a roof over your head, good food, and a comfortable bed. When you’re sick, home is the only place you want to be. Your family lives in your home; the most important people in your life. Focus upon being wise women who build your homes up, instead of tearing them down with your own hands.
