The Wise and Foolish Builders

 46"Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say? 47I will show you what he is like who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice. 48He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. 49But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.".. (www.biblegateway.com)

This is the home that my grandpa lovingly designed and built completely on his own from the ground up in the 1950's for his family.

He built this home completely on the foundation of Jesus Christ which still continues to support and hold my family up to this day.  I am so thankful for the example and heritage of love and faith that this home and my grandpa's life represents.

I do not want to forget this as Brandon and I build our first home together.  Of course, ours may already have walls and windows and even a foundation (well hopefully it has one of those), our home is more than that.  While I love picking out paint colors, gardening and decorating - and sharing it here.  Please know that it doesn't mean anything if Jesus Christ is not the foundation of our home and our lives.

That's just how I feel. That's a brilliant way of putting it. Well done.
