The War at Home

I chose ‘Words from the Home Front’ because it expresses what I would like for this blog to reflect. During WWII the phrase was used to indicate that the war was fought not only on the battlefield front but at home as well. The home front warriors knew that the small and seemingly insignificant things that happened on a daily basis could also have an impact on the war. I feel very strongly that this, too, is happening today in homes everywhere.

We are at war. There is a battle going on everyday for the hearts and minds of our children and grandchildren. It is our role to protect them and to teach them how to protect their hearts in the midst of the bombardment of the world; for small, seemingly insignificant things to make an impact in their lives and it starts with unconditional love. And unconditional love starts with God.

1John 4:7-12– Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.  Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.  This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.  This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.  Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.  No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
