There’s No Place Like Home

 

When I’m away even for a day trip, it’s always great to return. Often on my way up the drive, I  say, “Be it ever so humble, there is no place like home!”

The road back home is sometimes too long and difficult to travel.

Home is a place to be at Christmas. It’s a visit from the grandkids.

It’s a nostalgic place, a place for memories. A place for love.

No matter how far away your travels take you, there is no place as wonderful as home.
Home is being together, being happy, being free.

Home is the ending of the day, being thankful. Being grateful to God for all His many blessings.

Beauty is many things

Beauty is many things. It is the sun rising above the timberline to give its light to a dark and waiting world. It is the sound of a loved one’s voice when an eternity has elapsed since you last heard the familiar echoes in your heart. It is the violet beside the road, the Sweet Williams, the rose petals and budding oaks in spring. It is the voice of a friend when you need someone who understands. There is a secret– the beholder of beauty must open not only his eyes but his heart if he is to see the total realm of beauty. Like the ivy across a trellis, beauty and love intertwine, the one depends upon the other. Together they stand out in all their splendor.Collage for blog 1
