A house is nothing to envy.  Too many envied mansions hide cold or indifferent hearts living (or maybe not so much) together-but-not-together.

A house is nothing to miss once you or they have moved on.  Walls don't really whisper.

But houses are often envied or missed.  It's easy to do both.  There's always something "better" we want.  Always a moment elsewhere wanting to be relived.

The truth is, though . . .

A house is a shell.

The people within are the home.


  1. ouch. wow did I need to read this today. I'm yearning for a house with a yard and 3 bedrooms...

    but we have a home (3rd story apartment) full of love. and I need to be content.

    thank you.

    1. Thank you for stopping by! I think we all struggle with discontent from time to time. A home full of love is wonderful, no matter what the "shell" consists of. :) I love your name, "future hope." :)


I would love to know what is on your mind and heart. Respectfully-written differences of opinion are definitely respected here! :)
