Here is a shot from our youth group's recent Mission to Mexico trip where they built two homes for very deserving families.  As we hand the keys to the family we pray over them and their home.  After my first trip I was never the same, I wish I had such an opportunity when I was still a teenager.  I chose this verse to meditate on today, since the Lord is the most important part of any home.

A house is built by wisdom
and becomes strong by good sense.
Through knowledge its rooms are filled
with all sorts of precious riches and
Proverbs 24:3-4


  1. Absolutely beautiful, Julie. What a moving picture and love the Bible verse... Lori

  2. I love this verse and sadly have never really paid any attention to it before.

  3. cool picture.
    very LIFE magazine-ish.
    i don't think i have "heard" that verse.
    it's lovely.

  4. Great picture and verse. One of my favorites has been "Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain." Psalm 127:1

  5. Any chance you have a girl crayon roll made up already? Thought it would be a cute birthday present. The party is Saturday though...I could come pick it up if you have one. Will you e-mail me if you have one?
