For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Matthew 6:21)
I wonder if they will ever know how much I love and appreciate them, my wife and my son, and even our dogs; the one here now and the ones now gone? It is more than sentiment, security, obligation, or pleasure. It is everything. For me, our family is composed of the same fabric as God, who is Love; that same beautiful song that called everything into being. I wonder, will they ever know? Yet here we are. In all of my restless yearnings and detours, and in all of my mistakes and blind spots never did I (nor could I) imagine God would lead me to this place. I am home.
