Home

it's not that i hated our trip to jersey (and short trip to baltimore)...on some levels i liked it.

i liked the food (white castles and pizza!)...
it was nice to see our families...
i got to watch the mets-yankees game (one of the ones the mets won!) on tv with little or no interuption...
it was fun to watch our kids play with their cousins...

there was some good in it and on certain levels i enjoyed myself.

but...

but every time i encountered a car double parked...every time i was cut off...every time i heard music blaring late at night, every time i heard some one cursing without restraint, every time i smelled city smells, every time there was a crowd or traffic or anything like that...

i thought: i want to go home.

that's a nice picture of life here on earth...it has it's perks, there are things we enjoy about it...maybe even things we don't want to give up...

but...

but we still long for our Home.

so true. Sometimes my longing for Home is so intense that I find it hard to appreciate the things of my temporary home.

now, that's an interesting thought.

our home is yet to come...but while we're here, we're still guests of our Heavenly Father. therefore, we should appreciate the life He has given us here.
