Home Sweet Home





Beyond those doors and windows
Within those humble walls
Are childhood’s precious shadows
And memory-tender halls

Life’s brick and mortar dwelling
If shared in unity
Is Love’s soft-glimpsed fore-telling
Of what Heaven will be

Lord, in this little journey
Wherever we may roam
May our hearts forever be
Love’s gracious home sweet home

Janet Martin~ 

We all travel this time of year, don't we?
even if simply in thought,
back to what once was...

Above is a picture of my childhood home

  3. Yes, looking back and looking forward gives our "little now" the love to soften the journey.
