Welcome Home


That is where we are now. Almost unpacked and settled in.

Often the coming home is much sweeter than the being away - hard to believe and even harder to say.

What not so long ago was the rut and routine has gracefully become the warm and cozy. Within its embrace we are welcomed back to the reality of life.

And, we are glad to be back.

I think that we all need those get away moments. Sabbath breaks in the midst of being. Occasions to release, replenish and return.

Release that which we should never had gripped so tightly.
Replenish what is left empty and wanting.
Return not so much to what was but what should have always been.

Home again.

  1. Glad your home! It is always nice to get back to the warmth and comfort of home! Even though the getaway is usually so nice as well!

  2. I'm looking forward to saying that once and for all in heaven with God someday.

  3. Beautiful, absolutley beautiful.

    Welcome home.


  4. When it's all said and done - "there's no place like home"!

    I read about your sister-in-laws health crisis in a previous post and will be praying for her full recovery. Also, will keep your husband in my prayers as well! We serve an awesome God!

    Sweet Blessings!

  5. So glad you are back and I just totally agree with you shared here!

    My time away at the revival in Arkansas was a time of renewal for me, but I was so, so glad to get back home and start my refreshing time here!

  6. Glad you're home again, both physically and in your spirit. Love you friend, and love the look of the blog.
