Home for the holidays

There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? John 14:2

The time around the holidays can be especially hard when we miss our loved ones. As we feel the tug of eternity, through empty places at the table and traditions changed because of loss, we can be thankful for this hope: Jesus has marked the road home with signs of His grace. He has a room waiting and has set us a place at the table…right next to the ones we are missing.

Lord, keep my heart homeward bound.
