What Does Home Mean To You?

The word home is familiar to nearly everyone on this planet.  It’s the place where you sleep, whether it be in a house, apartment, boat, car, or cardboard box, somewhere is home to you.

Is home the place where you play with your kids, entertain your friends, celebrate special occasions.  Or is it where you first learned to ride a bicycle, a horse, a motorcycle, how to drive. 

Is home where you walk and play with your dog or where your cat sits in the window silently waiting for you to come home!

Is it where you enjoy watching movies with the family on a Saturday night, popcorn in hand, is it where you dance the night away, or is it where you listen to the songs you like and dance in the room with a partner or by yourself.

The problems you face today at home will disappear tomorrow.  When things don’t seem to be going your way, just wait, it will all change.  When the kids start to disobey and disrespect you, they will soon be grown.  When no one listens to what you have to say, when you cry to God in prayer, don’t worry, it will all change tomorrow.

Do you work on your vehicle at home?  Do you make things of wood?  Do you maintain your pristine lawn?  Do you help your neighbors?

To all of us, all around the world, home has a unique meaning that is only know to us as individuals.  Wherever you are, wherever you go, you will always have a home whether it is wonderful or something to run away from. 

Enjoy the people around you while you can as all things change.  Sometimes it is truly a shame when things don’t stay the same; but then again if we didn’t grow we wouldn’t change.

Home, the place where we lay our heads, it always changes, sooner or later.
