Finding Home

Last year, I participated in my first Write 31 Days  challenge. I wrote on Beloved. 

This year, I have a different theme in mind. With a cross-country move so recent, my life is a bit in upheaval. (As such, I ended up cutting this short, and currently, we sit at 29 days of home…I’m leaving the page at 31, in case those last two posts sneak up on me.)

Growing up, this upheaval is not what I wanted. I had moved so many times, and home was often not the best place to be. So much turmoil experienced. But, despite that, it was home. Until, my freshman year of college, when the home I spent most of my formative years was sold, and my family moved to a new location.

Since college, my life has resembled the first six years of my life: several residences across as many miles.

Now, I’ve relocated even further. And, further from what I thought I would have by this time:

A real, actual home. A place of my own to build a family, have guests, or shut away the world when need be.

Instead, I am learning so much about what home actually is. So, that is the focus of this challenge:

Finding Home

He blesses my home. My hope is secure in Him.

Hopefully, along the way, we all find something about home we can take with us wherever we find ourselves.
