HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS...

"Home is where the heart is!"
That's what people say...
Yet home is truly Home,
Where The Love and Will of God hold sway!

Its door is ever open,
To those who live within.
It also is wide open,
To those who seek The Peace they sense therein!

Its windows look out upon the world,
The curtains open wide.
The windows of the souls within,
Look out on this dark world and pray - God's Light they do not hide!

The walls stand firm against life's storms,
The roof secure above.
An expression to its occupants - and visitors -
Of God's Shelter and His LOve!

The hearth provides the warmth and light,
Just like The Father's Heart...
It's not dependent on earthly fuel,
But The Knowledge that Jesus' Unconditional Love will ne'er depart!

The Holy Spirit Roams each room,
A welcome Visitor is He.
The human failings of each soul,
Don't trouble Him, because His Access is Free!

The garden, if there is one,
May not be seen on 'Gardener's World'...
Yet... The Peace of God Abides here too,
Even if therein The Beauty of the 'weeds' has been unfurled.

The house and garden may not rate 'Home & Garden',
Or a showing on T.V.
Yet... home is truly Home where The Heart of God is Welcome -
And that's all that matters to me!
