A Place Like Home

Home describes and represents everything. It is the place where characters are frequently shows its repellent side, its defects and deficiencies. It is the refuge of the worn, the weary and the aged. It is the place where the many physical needs and ills of the human body most frequently come to the front and these things do not make for amiability.

It is also a place where in our parents nurtured us to have good values that kindness and patience, gentleness and charity are most in demand and should be most practiced by consideration for others, readiness to make allowances, showiness to see faults and take offense and willingness to overlook an excuse.

What is it that secures happiness in a home?

Let God's spirit be with the whole house to have a harmonious relationship with each family member. Having the spirit of sacrifice is important as well. We must give up our own personal tastes to conform to the tastes of others. Flexibility of character is valuable. We shouldn’t be hard to deal with, touchy or even proud. Not to grow impatient about things but to have a large mind and a generous heart.

Few things are more essential to the peace and happiness of the home. It is the spirit of give and take. It plays an important part of our daily life that without it the other home virtues cannot flourish in the family circle.
