gathering in

"Because in the end, the point of home in all its fullness - the point of good meals, full cupboards, or ordered rooms - is not just to provide creaturely comfort or to prove some sort of competence.  The point of home is to be a refuge for the soul, a place where beauty can be encountered, truth told, goodness touched and known.  It's why home needs hush as well as bustle, silence as well as song." ~ Sarah Clarkson, The Life Giving Home
