HOME ...

Have you heard any of these sayings?

Home is where the heart is. 
Home, sweet, home. 
There's no place like home.
Keep the home fires burning.
Make yourself at home.
Charity begins at home.
Close to home.
A good laugh is sunshine in a house.
A happy home is but an early heaven.
A house is built with boards and beams; a home is built with love and dreams.

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
In our home let love abide, and bless all those who step inside

Have LOVE in your HEART and PEACE in your HOME

Having someplace to go is HOME . . . Having someone to love is FAMILY . . .
Having both is a BLESSING.

When children laugh and families play, home is where they want to stay.

Our home is filled with peace and rest – may all who enter in be blessed.
Sit long, Talk much, Laugh often

Welcome Home

I wrote shortly after we moved last year about starting to feel at home in this new place.  And yet this world is not truly our home.  I am understanding that more and more.  I think I had hopes of finding that perfect house and perfect setting here.  But I was looking at it all from my point of view and my wants.  What makes a home?  Is it just a residence or a dwelling?  Where do we find home?  There's no perfect house or location.  Even if you had plenty of money and built your dream house - would it be perfect?  Probably not (that's a guess). 

I think home is not where but WHEN we are embracing our plans and life in God's hands knowing he loves us and he has our best.  We can trust all our dreams and desires to him when we are seeking and trusting him with all our heart.  It's not all about me right now.  Maybe I am here for my kids - this is the best place for them right now.  Or maybe it is for me and I don't see it yet or for my husband or for a way to serve.

So, I am embracing home.


  1. This is a beautiful post about the true meaning of what it means to be home. Thank you for sharing and linking up at The Weekend Brew!

  2. A great post that puts home in perspective. When I get too caught up in wanting this earthly home to be perfect I am reminded that we are not truly Home yet...

  3. Thank you for sharing all these lovely sentiments of home at the Art of Home-Making Mondays this week :)
