HOME is Where Your Heart Is - Introduction - John 14:23

Greetings!
On today we will begin a new series entitled, “Home is Where Your Heart Is.” 
The word home has been defined in several ways:[www.dictionary.com]
1.a house, apartment, or other shelter that is the usual residence of a person, family, or household.
2.the place in which one's domestic affections are centered.
3.an institution for the homeless, sick, etc.: a nursing home.
4.the dwelling place or retreat of an animal.
5.the place or region where something is native or most common.
 
 
While this list might include the technical definitions of the word home, if I asked any of you to define or describe the same word, it would be laden with emotions. For example, check out the following quotes:
 
 
Home is not where you live, but where they understand you.
Christian Morganstern
Home is a place you grow up wanting to leave, and grow old wanting to get back to.
John Ed Pearce
Home is the place where it feels right to walk around without shoes.
 – Anonymous
I long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself.
Maya Angelou
 
 
Friends, I am very clear that home is not the same place for everybody.  This word may not evoke positive thoughts or emotions for all of you.  For some of you, you may not claim to have a home or you may want to run away from home, or perhaps you have had the burden or the blessing of having had to live in many different types of homes
 
 
I will be honest with you. The word home evokes positive thoughts overall for me.  My memories of home while growing up are different from my current experiences of home as an adult.  I was blessed to grow up with 2 happily married parents who provided a stable home environment filled with love, affection, support, prayer, and generosity. However, I am keenly aware that my experience is not the same for everybody nor do I make ANY assumptions about the normalcy of my situation, and home might even be described in a different way were you to ask one of my siblings. 
 
 
I believe that men, women, boys, and girls can find themselves at home in places I have never been, places I may never go, with people I may never meet and that is OK.  I sense that this series will continue to broaden my perspective and heighten my awareness to the variety of places my BlogFam calls home.
 
 
All in all, I invite you to embark upon this new journey with me as we explore various scriptures and other home-related topics. AND above all, I pray that through this series we would all affirm that the Savior has found a home in the depth of our hearts. 
 
 
Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.”  John 14:23
So let the journey begin… And invite someone to join you :-)
 
 
BlogFam, let me hear from you. How would you describe your home? What is your ideal description of home?  What should not be found in a home? PLEASE Leave a comment below…

My home, on earth, is where my family is. My son and husband. We live where we live by the grace of God. My permanent home is Heaven. I am a child of God. Amen to your post!

Home for me is a mixture of wherever my family and friends are. Usually wherever they abide so do the memories that have helped shape me.It's always hard for me to give people one place that I would call home so that always evolves into a pretty fun and lengthy conversation. Ultimately, I believe the home should be a place of peace and affirmation.
