home, sweet (and true), home.
so it's been almost 8 months. i have an amazing amount of things to be thankful for, in this place we call a home. i'm really thankful for how faithful and true to his word God has been to us, despite us. and as we've settled into this house, it's been good for me to remember that we are not truly home yet. one thing i have learned from travel, moving and being unable to "keep" all of of the places and people i love, is that we are not home and will never be this side of heaven. i’ve realized that all of the places and people in the world that make me feel at home are like sweet mini-homecomings: gifts to remind me of the journey we're all on. i've tried and spent a lot of time wishing i could figure out how to keep all of those mini-homecomings. but, i can't. i can however, choose to be thankful and look ahead to when all things will come together. when home in the most complete sense, will be a reality.
