The Ten-Step Blue Print Plans.
Instructions on how to build a Christian home for your family.

(Note: There is an abundance of work involved be prepared.)

First: Lay a firm foundation mixed with strength and courage, wait until it hardens before proceeding to the next step.

Second: Place walls of protection on each side of the foundation.

Third: Cut windows inside all four walls to allow the Son to shine in.

Fourth: Screw on shutters of diligence.

Fifth: Attach on the door of deliverance from the evil and harm of the outside world.

Sixth: Raise roof on top layering it with shingles of hope, love, and devotion.

Seventh: Paint house with layer after layer of contentment.

Eighth: Construct front porch of peace.

Ninth: Lay down welcome mat of hospitality.

Tenth: Last but not least, the most important thing to keep this house strong, in harmony, and faithful, allow Jesus to be your building inspector. For regardless of all the work you’ve done without Him your house will deteriorate and crumble to the ground.

This is wonderful, I love the idea of the "front porch of peace."

Your top ten rules are original and wise. I especially liked Rule Ten for the truth it contained!

I think you've got it all covered! LOVED your tenth rule - must admit I never thought of Christ as the building inspector - but that is SUCH a good, accurate image! I just may have to "borrow" that one for a future story!!!

This is one of the better "short" pieces I have read. Very powerful, compact and creative. Be encouraged also as you read the above comments from very established, talented and anointed writers who felt led to encourage your efforts. They wouldn't say it if they didn't mean it. God bless.
