Poem – A Dream of Home

Greetings! Somehow another Saturday has rolled around, and I find that I have been home for four weeks now. I’m not entirely sure how that happened, but then time has a habit of slipping through my fingers like sand, so I really shouldn’t be surprised at this point. πŸ˜€Β 

Today I’m going to share a poem with you on the topic of home – inspired by the fact that I am currently home and loving it. πŸ˜€ This poem gives a small glimpse into one of the many dreams that I cherish close to my heart regarding my future. – a home full of children of my own. I know that I’m still many years away from this dream being realized, but it doesn’t hurt a girl to hope and dream… πŸ™‚Β

I dream of a house full of laughter and lively noise,

where there are more children than bathrooms

and where bedtime is a loud and crowded affair.

 

I dream of a house full of wooden blocks and crayoned artwork,

where miniature artists rub shoulders with tiny architects

and creating beauty comes naturally.

 

I dream of a house full of sunshine and the sweet aroma

of chocolate chip cookies and chubby newborn cheeks

that nestle warm against me.

 

I dream of a house where singing is our second language,

where music bursts out of every room and dancing is

second only to hugging.

 

I dream of a house full of children and love,

full of stray socks and scattered toys and stacks of books –

full of the bright anticipation of the future.

~

Do you love children too? What is one of your dreams that you have for your future? I’d love to hear from you in the comments! πŸ™‚

  1. Awww, this was so sweet, Hannah.
    Yes! I adore my siblings… although sometimes I wish I had some younger children around, too!
    A dream I used to have was either fostering or running a low-technology school for needy children. I don’t think the Lord is leading me towards that now, but maybe someday!

  2. You’re dreaming of a home full of children, laughter, music, sunshine, sweet aromas, love, etc. because I believe you have come to value these ingredients in a home. They have brought you much joy for 19 years. So you want them to be what will make your home a home. I will pray God would be pleased to have your dreams come true – in His time.:)
