Decorating the home is a matter of one’s personal choice. We choose items that represent our dreams, hobbies, and interests. Those who come to our homes may acknowledge the items we have around our home. But, they may not know and understand the true meaning of the items we have chosen.
Like blessing signs that adorn walls could be nothing more than a beautiful decoration to the visitor. But for us it may be a symbol of protection and safety blessed upon all who live there. Or all who enter are blessed, even for a short period.
To give somebody we love a sign with blessings inscribed, it can be a beautiful, spiritual gift and gesture. And while they may not have the same beliefs you do of a gift you’re giving them, it comes from your heart and soul.
