Looking for a most unique and inspirational housewarming, wedding gift or real estate closing gift? This House Blessing is from the Good Mother, Welcome book. I poured all my wishes for our home life into this blessing- with a nod, too, toward the messiness of living. It has proven to be very popular over the years. It's mounted on Italian & Japanese paper, measuring 8 x 10 inches, & fitting a standard frame.
This house is Love's house.
It is a sanctuary, a garden, a safe haven.
May it be delightful.
May it be a home that encourages
creativity and peace,
togetherness and private time.
May it be an environment
that celebrates life, untidy and ever flowing.
May simplicity be honored in this house,
valuing love above all else.
May daily chores and small moments
all be approached with reverence and with love.
Mistakes may be seen as lessons learned.
Kindness, forgiveness, laughter, joy,
and calm enthusiasm
will nourish all who enter through its doors.
May all who visit leave refreshed.
May all who live in this house
live in contentment and harmony,
dreaming many beautiful dreams,
rejoicing in the way things are.
