Hoping to paint "the most beautiful thing in the world" an artist asked three people what they thought it might be…

"FAITH" replied the clergyman, "you will find it at every altar"

"LOVE" said a young bride. "LOVE Builds poverty into riches, it sweetens tears; makes much of little. Without it there is no beauty.

"PEACE" is the most beautiful thing in the world," answered a weary soldier, "War is ugly. Wherever you find peace, you find beauty".

"FAITH, LOVE PEACE! How can I paint them! "Wondered the artist.

Entering his home he saw faith in the eyes of his children and love in the eyes of his wife. And in his home, he saw the peace that love and faith had built.

So he painted "The most beautiful thing in the world". And he called it "Home".

Home is the laugh of a baby, the song of a mother, the strength of a father, the warmth of loving hearts, light from happy eyes, kindness, loyalty, and comradeship.

Home is the first school and the first temple for the young. Here they learn what is right, what is good, and what is kind.

Home is where they go for comfort when they are hurt or sick. where joy is shared and sorrow eased, where father's and mother's are respected and loved, where children are wanted and treasured, where money is not as important as loving kindness, where even the tea-kettle sings for happiness…

That is The place called HOME! God Bless!!!
