Home is where friends come to visit us. Home is where we read and reflect and listen to the music we enjoy. It’s where we putter and plant gardens and rest to gain strength for our tasks. Home is the place I inhale the wonderful aroma of strong rich coffee every morning. . . . Home is where Nanci fixes wonderful meals, including the world’s best apple pie.
I realize it sounds like I’m romanticizing home. Yes, many people have had very bad experiences in their earthly homes. But the point is, our home in heaven is our real home. It will have all the good things about our earthly home, multiplied many times, but none of the bad.
