Blessing of the Home

  • January 30, 2017 by Finial User

The framework went up, and the next day our crew noticed people had written all over the wood. It was actually a wonderful sight to see because the woodwork was covered with encouraging messages and Scripture references.

Our clients hosted their family and friends at the construction site of their new home and invited them to mark up its framework. In a world where encouragement is often left to a quick Facebook post or emoji, it was a nice change to see people thoughtfully share their hopes for the family as they prepare to transition to a new home.

We loved this idea and wanted to share it with you. It doesn’t need to be an elaborate event. Just invite your family and friends and let them know you want them to be prepared to share their best wishes, a prayer, or a Scripture on the woodwork. Provide some light snacks and drinks. Everyone will want to walk through the house and imagine what it will look like when it’s complete. After a tour and some time to mingle, thank them for coming, pass out the Sharpie markers, and ask them to get to work.

If you have been invited to a Blessing of the Home and aren’t sure what to write, here are a few suggestions we have seen:

  • Colossians 3:14 could be written in any closet space. “But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.”
  • May this home be blessed with the laughter of children, the warmth of a close family, hope for the future, and fond memories of the past.
  • 1 Timothy 4:12 is a perfect Scripture for a child’s bedroom. “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.”
  • Bless this home and all who enter.
  • Deuteronomy 28:6 near the front door. “You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.”

They are enjoying this beautiful home and will never forget the special messages written inside the walls.
