Welcome Home


Home should be a place
Where warm arms embrace you

Welcome you home
After a long hard day

Where you are embraced by your biggest supporter
Your champion who believes in you

Accepts you for who you are
Imperfections and all

A place where judgment and condemnation
Are forbidden to enter

A place where you are loved by one
Who never ceases to hope and pray for you

A place where you can rest
Your weary body, mind and soul

Without fear that you will be examined
Picking apart every thought, word and deed

A place where you are encouraged
Though the world may leave you discouraged

A place where the enemy feels very unwelcome
Where he may not enter in

A place where forgiveness, love, grace and mercy flow free
Given beyond measure
