Freshen Up Friday

Think for a moment about what the entryway to your house looks like right now.  I don't mean "the company door" that's seldom used, but the door you and your family frequent when you return home.  Is it the door off the garage?  A side or back door that no one but your family uses?  At our house, we have a door that opens up from our bedroom onto the driveway. We use that door most because of its easy access and good lighting. I realized the other day that it could use some sprucing up. 

It's easy to pop a pretty wreath onto the front door, but neglect the door that's probably used more than any other - the one that welcomes your family home every single day.  On this Friday, why not step out there and take a look around and then take a few minutes to freshen it up

  • Have the fall leaves been swept away? 
  • Do you need a new welcome mat?  After all the most important people in the world come through that door!
  • Have you placed a Christmas wreath on that door?
  • Does that glass need a good cleaning?
  • Can you add a decorative touch that will show your family you care - or just make you smile when you arrive home?
  • If the door is in the garage, is there clutter around the door that needs to be pitched addressed?
Here are a few pics of what I did to our side entryway yesterday...

It's a little hard to see because the sun was shining so beautifully, but I hung a Christmas decoration on the door with a little sign included that says, "Home sweet home".

I added my old milk delivery box with some greenery, pine cones, bow, and a yard lantern
that will glow and give us a little light for entry at nighttime.

Here's a closer look at the milk box.
So, what will you do to freshen up your entryway?

See you in church!

Be refreshed,
