There's truly no place like home!

A godly, loving home is such a blessing! I have been blessed with this gift, that so many don't have, and all others take for granted.

by Anna Vallance

Home is where the heart is,
Be it rich or lowly place.
It's where we find a lighted lamp
And a cheerful loving face.

Home is a place where the heartstrings
Feel a tug that draws you back;
Where a wealth of precious memories
Recompense for worldly lack.

Home is where a mother's love
Surrounds with tender care;
Where tousled little childish heads
Bow down in sleepy prayer.

Home is where a father's strength
Surrounds, protects his own ...
God grant we keep within our hearts
This citadel of home.
