The Biggest Roof I ever Saw

I have the biggest roof of all the people I know. Sounds strange, but it’s true. My roof covers me, my husband and my dog (and not just any dog; she is a very needy, very weird, very large rescue dog) Additionally, it provides a safe haven for my sister as she prepares to get married (what a blessing to be the center of all this wedding planning, preparing, and yes all the mushy-gushiness that comes along with that). Very shortly my roof will also protect my favorite youngest sister from the trials of moving to a new place with unknown people, places and things (there is NOTHING better than showing off my city to a new resident). Not only that, but my roof harbors two refugees an their way to a glorious future (these two girls are some of the most special people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing, and I am overwhelmed that I get to share my house with them). Sometimes I sit and just soak up the blessing that washes over me when I realize that my roof covers so many different people in so many different stages of their lives. Not many people are able to provide a place of safety to so many beloved people. I am able.

God knew what he was doing when he provided a way for Jon and me to own this house. He was working on making a roof large enough to take in his prized sheep. My house is not just a house. It is a roof that covers the people I love and gives them a home to come home to. I am getting the warm-fuzzies just thinking about it…=)
