When the beautiful Val [tbV] and I finished our time at the Simple Way, our bossman Darin suggested this wooden artwork, that a friend of theirs could put together for us, with some words that we had spotted on the Book of Facings, as a farewell gift, and we jumped at it.
These words are powerful and are a covenant of who we would like to be as a family and the kind of home environment we are working towards, both for ourselves and for the many people we hope to extend hospitality to who will come and stay with us, and, for a short or long time, become a part of our family.
Some of these are definitely easier than others.
But all of them are valuable to us.
And it feels like we’re making progress on a couple of them.
This list is not all-inclusive by any means, or even close to. But it is populated with words, experiences and principles that we value and want to chase enthusiastically after.
Ah, wait, I’m doing it wrong. I said WE WANT TO CHASE ENTHUSIASTICALLY AFTER!
We didn’t come up with this list, so you are welcome to borrow them and embrace them. Even come up with some of your own.
So let’s hear from you then… What are two things you would add to this list if it was in your home?
