Description of a Palace


I love normal words that paint a vivid picture, a simple set of thoughts, plain, humble, but...well, look:

"It's not a grand house. It's just an everyday house, but everything that's happening in it is good and so that means it's a palace."

Isn't that fulfilling?

It's here: 2:08-2:17

  3. What a wonderful thought! And true! A home is what you make it, no matter the size.

  4. Sandi, I love words too. Sometimes just a simple phrase can say volumns. Thanks for your visit. I wasn't sure which one with the blue border you were talking about, but thought it might be the last pic?? If so, that is a candle holder from Joanne's. Pretty, and inexpensive. Happy Sunday..Judy

  6. I think plain words say it best; and it's not about a grand house; it's about love in that house. Wishing you abundant love!

  7. A house can be as big as your imagination wants it to be.

    God bless.

  8. People tend to say: my home is my palace, or my home is my fortress. Yes, home is what the owner feels and says it is for him. And that saying is quite enough to give an accurate description of his home; no other words are neccessary.

  13. Oh I love this, Sandi. It really got to me because home is so important to me. There is a quote that I want to share with you....

    "Home can heal. There is healing in home."
    ~Maya Angelou.

    Now, I'll click on the link you shared.

  15. Me too, but I enjoy looking up word origins...also I find that old books, like Pinocchio, are written so much better and vividly than most things written today, sadly.
    Thank you for visiting my blog, and your loving comment. ❤️

  22. Hi Sandi,
    We have never been rich, but everything God has given us, whether physical or Spiritual has brought 'satisfaction'. What lies ahead in Jesus far outdoes anything in this world.

  27. "In My Father's house are many mansions...if it were not so, I would have told you....I go to prepare a place for you..." (John 14:2)... also..."be it ever so humble, there's no place like home..." And "home is where the heart is...".

  31. Hi Sandi, Just stopping by this morning to see if you had a new post I hadn’t seen yet when I noticed the line in your header, “A quiet whisper on a very loud Internet. Can you hear me?” To tell the truth, I often prefer the whisperers over the noisy ones. Whisperers are usually more sincere. :-) I hear you clearly! John

  32. I love words like that, too, Sandi.

  33. It is not house

    it is people that give meaning to their place

    i saw dark barren palaces

    and

    simple ,sweet full of life houses that seemed FAR MARVELOUS THAN ANY PALACE
