"Home is where the heart is." "There is no place like home." "A house is made of walls and beams....a home is made of love and dreams. "Love makes a house a home." "Home is not a place, it's a feeling." How many phrases about home have you heard? At this season of the year, we often hear folks talking about "going home for Christmas.” Or, "are the kids coming home for Christmas?" We've all heard the song, "I'll be home for Christmas" sung a gazillion times over the years. Just where is your home? "Grandma, are you and Grandpa going home tomorrow?" "Yes, Erik, we are." "That makes me a little sad." (hearing him say a' little sad' made me want to cry! A LITTLE sad?!) 'But Grandma, dya know what?" (dya know what is his latest catch phrase) "What?" "I will miss you, but you can be in my heart with Jesus n Grandpa n Mommy n Daddy n Milo. Then when I miss you, I will just think about you and you will be right there in my heart and I can remember you!!" "Erik, how can Jesus and Grandpa and I and Mommy and Daddy and Milo be in your heart?" "BeCAUSE that's where Jesus lives--in my heart--it's His HOME!" I found out that his heart is a BIG home--it's home to Jesus, Grandpa and Grandma, Grandma and Grandpa Bill, Grammie, Auntie Lisa and Uncle Michael and cousin Indie, and Milo (the dog) and Mommy and Daddy and, and...! I asked him how Jesus got into his heart, and he told me he asked Him to live there, and now it's His HOME! Out of the mouths of babes--except he is 5, going on maybe 25 years old? Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." (Matt. 19:14) So, this holiday season-especially when we hear talk of home--if we've asked Jesus to live in our "heart home", we are HOME, whether near or far--we are HOME. Submitted by Bernie Miller
