Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. Ephesians 3:17 NLT
House Keeping – The Home Series – Part 1
Have you ever seen “those” pictures on Instagram of people’s homes where there’s not a thing out of place (or if there is, it’s been put there on purpose for the shot and somehow looks amazing), all the furniture matches, the light is perfect, people are smiling, their teeth are pearly white, the artwork on the wall behind them is hung straight and looks like it cost the earth? The photo has been framed beautifully, the brightness and contrast are adjusted expertly, and the image portrayed is, well, perfect. Like a “house selfie” if a house could take one.
These pictures trouble me. I’m not great at setting up a shot, and then taking it. I never quite frame it right or get the lighting spot on. Then there’s the issue of the subject: my house.
