Footprints on the Fridge has been sponsoring a series of fairs where we can share with one another our ideas and inspirations for filling our homes and lives with simple loveliness, in the simplicity and loveliness of our Faith.
The theme I get to host here is:
The question is:
"Where do you go in your home when you need to think, pray, reflect? How can we create Sacred Spaces in our homes arranging areas and things to reflect the presence of God? Let's use what we already have to beautify a space for prayer and reflection and then share those ideas."
The concept of the "domestic church" is one that's always been near and dear to my heart, so I jumped at the chance to provide the space for this fair. Picture it a soft spring morning here at the AWTY fairgrounds. Empty booths range around the grassy fields, banners and penants flutter in the breeze. The crowd is beginning to trickle in... Will you help me fill up the booths with your ideas?
What things have you already done to beautify your home in the spirit of the Catholic Faith? What would you like to do? How does your family honor the Holy Family, the saints, the liturgical year through little reminders in your home? Do you have a quiet spot where you can slip away to pray? Do you have special decorations you use for the holidays, most especially for Easter, since this is our iminent celebration? Do you use color or music in a special way? How do you help to make your home a visual prayer for your family? Old or new posts, all are welcome! Please share the wealth of your ideas!
Leave me a note any time this week and I'll add your link to my Simply Lovely Events Calendar. Or just leave your inspirations in the comments box! I'll be posting everything a week from Wednesday, March 12th.
I'll also be taking pictures of our "domestic church" here at the old farmhouse and posting on what those words mean to us. I'm so looking forward to wandering through the booths with you!
