A Home of Peace, Rest, and Beauty...

"I have deliberately avoided writing too much about what is currently happening in Israel. This is not because I live in a bubble, but because I'm determined to keep our home a place of peace, rest, and beauty. I'm doing this for the sake of my husband, and for our sweet child who is about to enter this world any day now. I have awareness, but I refuse to become unsettled.

This is why I continue to happily spend my days making beds, doing dishes, folding laundry, cooking, baking and cleaning; I read, do crafts, take walks and watch our garden grow. I sit for long stretches of time with my hand on my belly, feeling the movements of the dear treasure within.

If there is ever a collective draft of all adult men here, I want my husband to be able to go away knowing he is leaving a calm, responsible wife and mother behind, someone who will be a source of support and comfort to any children we might have. Drawing my consciousness within, I surrender to God and give my all to my precious family."

Read Mrs. Anna T.'s full article here... She is an inspiration to those of us who live in places that are so much safer and much more peaceful than Israel.

I truly believe prayer is the best thing we can do. I have gone to bed at night praying for the mothers who have sons and children on both sides.

When we are able, we give a little money to the Joshua Fund which was set up by Joel Rosenberg (the author).

The help people who are directly in harm's way in Israel.

Setting up a peaceful sanctuary is the best gift you can give your family. Have you heard the story behind the Gather's song Because He Lives?

Gloria was afraid of the world her new baby was being born into and God assured her because He lives, she can face tomorrow as can her children. That child is now grown with a family of her own. :)
