a breathing home

oh quiet house! that rests now...calm before the storm..
its as if i can hear you breathe in and out...out and in...gathering strength again...
breathe in and out...out and in ...like the sleeping boys with blankies
Resting well before you wake again. Your slamming doors, fast feet on floors...laughter hitting walls...baby coos.....questions loud..drum beat sounds...
pitter patter...dog that barks when people knock ...
"Hello..come in.....good bye...". The heat is HOT outside..you shade us well until the night
You rest again....this cycle of a breathing home...
The Spirit wind that circles round' each room...filling hearts with truth
and help......the Spirit that is truly Home...making this a breathing place...
in and out...out and in...
rest well...and i will too...the minutes tick and tock before we wake again...

Mandy...I am so enjoying your blog and this poem is a special treat. It is such a beautiful picture of a Spirit-filled home. It reminds me so much of my home when my children were growing up. And now it reminds me of my home...especially when the grandchildren are here. Children truly are a gift from the Lord. And the Lord's Spirit is what makes all the difference. Thank you, Mandy. Your sons are simply gorgeous. Really...I love this poem!
