In these holy places we find peace in the lack of chaos, a respite from the hectic. We also gain greater peace from our visits there by communicating with our Creator and seeking His guidance in our lives and with our families.
In the first part of this series on Making Home a Haven, I mentioned that I like to pattern my home after the temple and after the beautiful earth that God created for us to inhabit. The peace and quiet found on a mountain path or in a comfy corner of the Lord's house can calm, rebuild, and restore what the battles of everyday life can tear down.
