A House Of Blessing

 

The words below are by Chris Goan who explores in the rewriting of the Beatitudes the importance of our homes. The image above was the birthplace of John Clare a celebrated poet of the labouring class taken by David Perry. Both the words and the image come via Twelvebaskets. In part the thoughts that Chris explores are not dissimilar to  yesterdays post where I looked at Psalm 30.

Blessed is the house of the poor in spirit (for this home belongs to the Kingdom of Heaven.)

Blessed is the house of those who mourn (for their homes will be places of comfort.)

Blessed is the house of the meek (For their house is bigger than the whole earth.)

Blessed is the house of those who long for righteousness (for their homes will be pregnant with grace.)

Blessed are houses full of mercy (for love will rest in them.)

Blessed are the house of the pure in heart (for God will be ever present.)

Blessed are the houses of the peacemakers (The sons and daughters of the Living God.)

Blessed are the houses that are broken because of Jesus. (The Kingdom of heaven is no earthly insurance policy.)
