Five Minute Friday - Home


It's time for the "Five Minute Friday" blogging post. The inspiration comes from Lisa Jo Baker


What you do is set your timer for five minutes and write whatever you want according to the prompt Lisa places on her blog every Friday. Then you go back, link your blog and give support to those who posted before you. And, we connect on Twitter with #FiveMinuteFriday.

Ready.
Set.
Go.

Home

Home used to mean a structure. A place to live. Where I put down roots and made a nest. Home no longer means any of those things. Home is where I will go when I die and am Heaven-bound. That is home to me. My existence in this world is temporary. We all are here on borrowed time. God's time. And, when God calls us home, what a glorious day that will be. Home is where my heart is. My heart is with my Lord Jesus Christ and my place is at his side. Just as he's been at my side my entire life.

So, we can all live in our temporary structures with roofs over our head and a place to park our car, but can we really call that our "forever" home? Events change in our life. Will the house you live in now, be the same house you live in next year? In five years? At the end of your years? Nothing is the same except change. I think I heard that quoted somewhere. Only one thing is constant in my life. God's presence in my heart.

My "forever" home awaits me. Do you have a forever home to go to at the end of your days?

Stop.

While I wrote about my current 'roof over my head home' I'm so happy to have read your lovely post on our forever home.

Well done!

Thrilled to stop by via 5MF. Happy Friday to you!

Oh yes! Home is where my Christ is and sometimes I need to remind myself about that. I can't even comprehend entirely what a wonderful day that will be.

Joy, Nikki, Amy, Firefly, and Rachel, thank you so much for your beautiful comments and encouragement. I truly appreciate it. Yes, I was inspired that day when I wrote my 5 minutes. I wanted to write more, but alas time was up. Have a blessed day!

What a great concept for a linky. I'm not really an overly religious person and I'm still figuring out what I believe in regards to the after life, but it's always comforting to think that there's a better place waiting for us.

This link up is sounds like so much fun. I hope to join next Friday. I enjoy reading your post. It's really comforting to know that your beloved one who's no longer with us on this earth is at peace at somewhere better.
