Many stories of divorce in the family, children less attention and affection of parents. Maybe we ask is there any happiness in the midst of the family?

Is there a heaven in our homes?

At the time of attending the wedding ceremony we always congratulate to happy couples; Welcome a new life may be happy and successful always, and other sweet words and pleasant. I've read there is a way to say to the bride: Congratulations knitting love in misery. Suffering? Then I remembered the strange statement: If you want to see heaven or hell, just merriade! What is the Institute of marriage is a shadow of Heaven and Hell, of course not. This is maybe meant that the happy atmosphere of hope and struggle, quarrel occurred one after another in the family life.
If we look at the experience of our lives as a couple, husband and wife, there are steps that were prevalent in tha life of couple. Initially, husband has a lot of promise and wife hear faithfully. In the following period, when the need of family economy increased, wives complain and discuss that many shopping is not enough, while husband listen and keep silent. Peak stage, the husband and wife both speaking and discussing various problems : kitchens, children, school, finally up to the blame each other. Sometime, conjugal life's journey ended in divorce which dashing hopes of happiness for their families. Is there a Heaven in their homes?.
The psalmist said that God's message is very beautiful: Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it (Psalm 127: 1 a). This verse very clearly confirms that the house is meant the temple or ordinary house or the unit of family is a building that is not designed by human but God's design. The house must be built according to the pattern of God, at least meet some criteria according saith the Lord: the sanctuary, (Exodus 25: 8-9) ; the place of God's law works ( Exo 38: 21) A ritual place to prepare offerings that are pleasing to God.
Perhaps this is an honest answer that our Church, our homes, our families are still struggling to meet the appropriate standard of God pattern; Therefore, we need a great power to build it. Once again the psalmist reminds, the great powers: "Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain that build it."

In some countries put women only as a housewife. When a divorce occurs it is difficult even no chance to find a job for financing her famillies. Let us support the women emancipation in all fields. Thanks your comment.
