Fw: Home

John 14:23 Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.
This humble house reminded me of the place of "home" in our lives.  Home is where family forms...where new life begins, where birthdays are noted with cake and candles, where the day is revisited over the table, where the discipline of chores leads to the healthy routine of work, where the next crop of children is raised in the shadow of the parents' love...for each other and for them.  Home is where we grow up...home is what we build in our families...home is the context for activity and for rest that we have in common.
And when we love the Lord and follow His direction the Father and the Son make their home within us...truly this is the completed home...a home we will never have to leave.

"Death is inevitable.  Life is a choice!"

John 11:25
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live."
