Blog Every Day Feb: Day Twenty-one - Home

Linking up with Bailey Jean for February's blogging challenge!

The meaning of HOME. Well, once again Bailey has perfect timing, because by now the surprise is done: I'm in Kentucky, my Other Home! My bosom friend AJ's birthday is next week, so I flew out to surprise her. This really deserves its own post, but since the subject is home, I thought I'd share :)

Home is wherever you're a part of a family. I consider Seattle my home because my biological family and church family are here; I consider Kentucky my other home because my non-biological family and church family are here.

Home is where you are welcome no matter what time and no matter what situation. Home is the place of unconditional love and acceptance. Home is the anchor that keeps you grounded and in the right place.

Home is wherever the Lord has called you. Home is where there's grace. Home is where there is rest.

  1. Love this. I love the word home & the concept of home. I especially love this quote from CTM >> "Home is not simply a mark upon a map any more than a river is just water. It is the place of the center of the compass from which every arrow radiates and where the heart is fixed. It is a force that forever draws us back or lures us on. For where the home is, there lies hope. And the future waits. And everything is possible."
