Do you have a home? Do you know how hard it is to make one? Looking at your environment, you’ll effortlessly find uncountable houses with different architectures, colours and even sizes. More so, in the city centres. But taking a panoramic view at the society, you’ll agree, without bating and eyelid, that the one thing on high demand is a home. We’ve been very busy building magnificent houses with no a home to call our own. Stay with me for some seconds and understand the difference between a house and a home and which is best for you.
A house is a building/structure used for multifarious purposes such as residential, official or even for entertainment. People who converge in houses often feel themselves strangers to one another. This goes to explain the heavy exchange of blows and dominance contest in the boxing ring (an entertainment house) and a host of other acrobatics and branded inhuman treatments replicated in other houses with pseudo names like domestic violence etc.
A HOME is a place of residence or refuge. ~Wikipedia. Home is where the heart is. It is where love abides, “Many a man who pays rent all his life owns his own home; and many a family has successfully saved for a home only to find itself at last with nothing but a house.” Bruce Barton. What’s more? Home is where we find completeness, find freedom to be ourselves. It is where our first lessons on discipline, adjustment and accommodation, rights and duties, obligations and responsibilities, spirit of fellow-feeling, love and sympathy are learnt. It is where we turn to for succor when life and the society make a mockery of our very existence and efforts.
Won’t you rather make a home? It is very costly. More costly than any edifice on the surface of the earth but comes with unquantifiable advantage. You will have a husband, children, in-laws and a set of people you can heartily care for and protect with everything that makes you a woman. You can have special magic woman (wife) who can stroke away your fears and frustrations just by caressing your muscles and awakening the man within you. When you really understand these things and more, you will know, beyond anything else, THE JOY OF LIVING. So many benefits come with having a home as opposed to an edifice/house.
