As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Words Are Not Enough
I have been a bit quiet here lately.
Sometimes, words are not enough.
Words are not enough to describe the tingling anticipation we felt when expecting the visit from our faraway family.
Words are not enough to convey the joy we experienced during the week of reunion and making new memories.
And words are not enough to express the aching that comes when the last teary good-byes are said and we don't know when we will have another reunion.
All is well.
We are grateful. We are reflecting. We are returning to our daily rhythm.
