Door Blessing

O God, make the door of this house wide enough to receive all who need human love and fellowship, narrow enough to shut out all envy, pride and strife.  Make its threshold smooth enough to be no stumbling block to children, nor to strained feet, but rugged and strong enough to turn back the temptor’s power.  God, make the door of this house the gateway to thine eternal kingdom.

We began moving in to our home this weekend.  We will likely take the next few weeks to be completely moved in.  There is still painting and floor finishing going on around Brian’s work schedule.  Yesterday, the china cabinet and jelly cupboard were moved over to be painted and placed in the pantry, giving us a place to store food until we can order more cabinets.

It’s giving the little house a sort of “camp” atmosphere.  We’re eating in the living room because the table is doing duty as storage for everything that was in the two cabinets.  I’m trying to embrace it.

In the meantime, I am enormously grateful for the weather, which has been perfect for playing, packing, loading and unloading… and for exploring our fields and woodlands, which we did briefly last Friday.  We were doing a land survey and soil samples for our crop planning.  I found lots of places for beautiful photographs, and for nature walks.  Partridge berries, ferns, mosses and mushrooms, seedling trees and decaying trunks, animal tracks and streams.  Blessed are we.
