“Sometimes our hearts get tangled
And our souls a little off-kilter
Friends and family can set us right
And help guide us back to the light.”
Just some very simple, but grateful thoughts about my family:
They are home! well two of them came last night, another will come with two friends tomorrow, for the weekend! I think another will come on Monday for a few days and later in the month another of my sons will return from a year of travels in Australia and New York!
I love it when family come back to touch base!
They don’t need to do anything, or even have a reason to come… they just know they’re welcome home – anytime… it’s never a bother or too much effort to have them come. Cost doesn’t matter… they’re home!
The music comes from various rooms and makes a cacophony of noise that becomes a joy to hear…because there’s life in the house… and mess… and bustle and … family!!
So today I am grateful for my children, their presence and their chatter, their problems, and queries, because in the rest of home their issues become rested and their questions are worked through… They are loved … and they know it. It brings them home!
So too our hearts can find their home in God’s presence, our questions can be aired and peace and nourishment can be found there… home – where your heart is!
