Five Minute Friday: Home

From the series by

Perfect topic this week, as it's been a hard week emotionally.  Still missing the home we had in Michigan with our church family and our biological family, while trying daily to make this new house our home.  The kids feel the struggle as well, as they still will tell me how much they miss Saginaw, and then we will take turns saying what we miss.  But then I try to get them to think of what they would miss here in NC if we were not here, and that helps a lot.  Of course, then there's the whole "Is the house I grew up in my home?  Are where my parents live my home?"  As an adult with my own family, I'm learning every day that my home is where they are.  And thankfully, God is wherever we are, and that makes things "homey" as well.  Right now, our home is a place where my son can get the help that he needs, even though at times it feels very far away from friendly and familiar faces.  I think it will help me to remember Jesus' arms wrapped around me at night when I'm sad and missing things, that He is my Home, where I belong, where I can feel safe, and where I can always come back to.  That makes me feel a lot better.


  1. Stopping by from the FMF linky! :) I'm in Dryden, MI! So fun to meet someone from so close to me! I am sorry you are feeling homesick, but you definitely have the right outlook! Rest in His arms, His hope, His promises, and His grace and you will always be home. I pray your son with get whatever help that he needs and that you will feel joy, comfort, and peace in your new home. :)

  2. 'He is my Home.' That is a wonderful line, Sarah! Praise the Lord for never leaving us! I don't know your story but I pray that this turns out to be a fantastic change and that the Lord blesses you! So glad I stopped by from FMF!
