Home Is Where The Heart Is

The past couple weeks the Wonderdog residence has been host to a number of travelers, and I've loved it. I loved how our condo was full of life. I loved talking to our guests about where they've been, what they've experienced and what they thought of Canada, and Central Ontario.

It got me thinking (we're ditching the condo in favor of a house later this year) what kind of home I would like to have.

(I haven't really talked to Mrs Wonderdog about this, so I'm not sure if it will actually happen)

Ideally I'd like to have an open home. The kind of place where people feel welcome to stop in anytime. They kind of place where travelers can stay for a night or two while exploring Central Ontario. The kind of place where community exists. Where people feel welcome and loved, even if we've never met before. The kind of place where food and drink are plenty, and joy fills the air. The kind of home I think Jesus would have had.

I'm not sure how realistic this dream of mine is, but I like to think it's doable.

  1. Nice idea. Keep your eye on your DVD and CD collection. And what if they clog up your toilet?
