Naming our home

My "new to us" home
needed a name. This is what I came up with,
based on the fact that we live on a slight hill
*Hill~Light Cottage*
Read the scriptures below and you will see why?
What do you think?
Matthew 5:14
Ye are the light of the world.
A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
Matthew 5:15
neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel,
but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
Matthew 5:16
Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Sounds just right! (o:

I love it Deby! As time allows you should have a plaque made up with the name or the verses or even an emblem for the name. Nalley has a friend in the sign business who made a driveway sign for our "Circle of Love." The sign prompts many people to ask the story behind the name and gives us an opportunity to share.

Deborah said...

I like it! Great verses to go with it...maybe you could have a sign made with the scripture below the name.

I really love it. My home came with a name that is aptly 'Tall Pines Farm'. I think I'll keep that since it sounds quaint and really IS surrounded by Tall Pines! :)

I think all homes should have a name. I'm still thanking God continually for our beautiful little farm. Enjoy your new home, Dearest. I love your new header picture!

Love the name :)

Mrs. Rabe said...

It is a perfect name - very descriptive of what you want your home to be "a light on a hill".

Can't wait to see what you are doing there at "Hill Light Cottage."
