The house before the one we now have was a big, boxy, four bedroom with three large living areas, formal living room, downstairs den, and upstairs recreation room where the kids could play with games and toys and watch TV while the downstairs was presentable. I loved every minute in that special house we chose, built, and enjoyed for seven years.
The service is over, the message preached, friends greeted, we are alone and cacooning...which is the term they use, for a quiet restful drawing away from activity and enjoying the day. We have no fierce winds and cold to hide from, but I am still opting to read and rest, to watch some sports, and to recharge for a new week. Sweet.
