Making Your Home a Haven~Week One

It is week 1 of the Making Your Home a Haven Fall Challenge.
This week's challenge is to buy an extra large candle and light a candle everyday in your home. I am placing my candle in the kitchen in the center of the island. Each time the candle catches my eye, I will say a prayer for peace in our home. I will light the candle each afternoon when we return home from school.

Courtney has a great post on her blog about how we are responsible for making our home a haven, not by what we have but by our own attitude. I try very hard to be the woman in home number 2 for my husband and children. Since we just moved in only five short days ago, it has been a struggle to feel like this house is a haven. I am working on it. I want it to feel comfy, neat, warm, safe and inviting. I've worked so hard that I'm feeling run down and am fighting a head cold. It is paying off though, dh mentioned last night that the house is finally starting to feel like home when he returned from ds's hockey practice. That is rewarding!

If you want to join in the challenge, visit Courtney's blog at and link up!

Blessings and peace,
