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.

"Our Thanks, O God, For Fathers"

Lois S. Johnson

Our thanks, O God, for fathers Who follow in Thy way,
And who with glad and trusting hearts, Exalt Thee every day.

Our thanks, O God for fathers Who show by word and deed,
Commitment to Thy will and plan, And Thy commandments heed.

Our thanks, O God for fathers Who meet Thee oft in prayer,
And who for all life’s toil and care, Find strength and wisdom there.

How blessed are the children Who in their fathers see
The tender Father-love of God, And find their way to Thee.
