Why not have a lovely home that encourages all who enter? Why not be among those who are thrilled to have people over at the spur of the moment? Why not be the person to whom people say, "your house is so lovely!" Why not have people over for meals with out working yourself to death to get ready? Why not have a house that raises your self esteem rather than tears it down? Why not have a house that is filled with your favorite colors and accents? Why not have a house that reflects the peace and grace of God so others love to come over to hear about Him? Why not have a house in which you can read or pray without feeling guilty because you are not cleaning? The real question is not why should we have a nice house. The real question is why not?
