He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. - Colossians 1:15-16

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

Yes, home should be a our little slice of heavenly peace among the chaos of the world. Beautifully written Susan.
