Peaceful Home

"If our lives are too stressed, it is hard to be patient, and we tend to be less peaceful.  If people have not been listened to, they will not feel patient or loved.  Furthermore, a person who is hungry and has not had a good meal at the right time will also lack patience.  You can see that getting a good atmosphere is a tall order and that there is more to it than meets the eye."

"Atmosphere. The one that is genuine, honest, open, true.  And this means asking for and giving forgiveness, for we all sin.  None of us gets it right; none of us is easy to live with."

-Susan Schaeffer Macaulay
