I jotted this poem down in a note on my phone last summer and found it today while clearing out.  I took that sunset picture from our backyard the night we got back from our honeymoon.  It was my warm welcome to our first home on the first night I ever spent there.  #warmfuzzies

We’re learning that possessions can begin to possess
Until in our mess, we can learn to confess
That we became slaves to the unyielding stress
Of the insatiable urge to inspire and impress
We profess that less is not really less
But a means of the Lord to sanctify and bless

So invest in your nest and make it your own
A place where the treasure of your heart is shown
Where the grace and provision of the Lord is known
And character and compassion can be grown
But know that this will never be Home
You can’t take it with you when you go
