No Place Like Home

Today I returned from an overnight trip. I did enjoy it, but it will be nice to be back in my own bed tonight. There is no place like home, whether it is your home, your parent's, friend's home or even your hometown. It makes me think of what heaven must be like. It must be home. It must be that place where you wonder why you had to stay away for so long. It must be that place where we nestle into the Sacred Heart of Our Lord and rest in blissful wonder. This Thanksgiving I want to remember to thank God for preparing a place for us and welcoming us home in love!

Thanksgiving is a perfect time to thank God for all the gifts he has given each one of us.

Well said! I join you in your prayer of thanks for the place He has prepared for each of us.
This post makes me think of the song This is Home by the Christian band Switchfoot.
Thanks and God Bless!
