Glad to be HOME!
When I told the guys at work I was going on vacay I told them we’d be gone 18 days, 2 work weeks plus weekends. We made it ten days.
Not because we were having a bad time – we were having an excellent time away. We were ready to come home.
In all reality, we have two homes. One is 399 square feet and one is 84 square feet! Gracee is an awesome and comforting home away from home. We close her door and we are in a lovely, cozy space. Not a lot of walk-around room but as long as neither of us get one ounce larger, we can both fit and move around at the same time!
Hubs treats me like a Queen when we camp. He makes the coffee and takes care of all the hook-ups. On days we want it, he makes breakfast. I do all the straightening up, wiping down, making beds and hanging towels – we have a good working system.
Several weeks ago, we watched the first season of THE CHOSEN – we enjoyed it immensely. Some of the scenes, which are the most poignant are when Simon Peter goes “home” to see his wife. The series is incredibly well done – Peter’s wife and he always have a tender moment and one can see the joy he has at being “home.”
When we pulled into our driveway last night at 11:45 p.m. the contentment washed over me. Hubs opened the front door and said,
“It’s nice and cozy in here.”
He was referring to the temperature; however, in 20 minutes we were under the covers of our bed and I thought,
“There is nowhere else I’d rather be.”
Can we even remotely envision what heaven will be like? I would imagine the very moment we get there it will be an immediate sense of belonging and the desire to never be anywhere else. Home, at last.
Abraham was looking for a city which will last for ever. It was the city God planned and made…Hebrews 11.10
I can only imagine!
This little diddy is ready:
