a house full of love

"a home is a house full of love" 

Tonight after a long and lovely day in the glorious sunshine, Kevin and I collapsed on the couch and snuggled up. 

February already! I can't believe it. 
looking around, I started noticing how many signs of love are strewn across the house, 
and my heart radiated. 
love is what makes a home. 

and of course not just love items,
but real.live.love. 
that we give each other, 
and we pray we give those around us. 

here is a glimpse from our home the last few days....

 {handcrafted heart made in thailand}
{jeremiah 31:3 "I have loved you with an everlasting love: I have drawn you with unfailing kindness"}

 {tribute to my swedish heritage...otherwise known as a straw heart from ikea}
{cuddling love}
{lovebirds and my parents on their engagement, 31 years ago!}
 {love banner, and peace dove}
 {last night our life group hosted a mini-vbs for the kids in our neighborhood. We played games, shared the story of Jesus and Peter walking on water, complete with a sweet skit, sang songs, and shared dreams! it was beautiful...so much love filling our home.}
 {when i saw one of the kids today, he ran up to me with a huge hug, and said "katie! i had so much fun last night! so.priceless.}
 {small groups and sharing dreams}
{cuddle time}

may our homes ever be FULL,
overflowing,
brimming,
blossoming,
singing,
shouting,
spilling,
love. 
sweet love. 

happy february sweet dearest friends! 

love katie

  13. I have never seen a group of people pour out love as freely as you guys do. We seriously talk about you guys at missional community (house church) often and so desire to have your hearts. It is so beautiful and compelling. Thank you. Love, Anna
