“If you have been afraid that your love of beautiful flowers and the flickering flame of the candle is somehow less spiritual than living in starkness and ugliness, remember that He who created you to be creative gave you the things with which to make beauty and gave you the sensitivity to appreciate and respond to his creation. Creativity is his gift to you and the ‘raw materials’ to be put together in various ways are His gift to you as well.”
It doesn't have to be expensive. I get most of my decorating items either from Goodwill or garage sales! I also use materials from around our property. It's very "organic" and cheap!! You can make your home look cozy and inviting. A lit candle does wonders for making everyone feel safe & snug. So, if you struggle w/ coming up w/ ideas....just look online, there are literally thousands of ideas to copy from those much more talented. (That's what I do!!) And remember, with your home, you are making memories your children will cherish for a lifetime!!
