There is a longing in every one of us.
Some of us feel it when we’re with others and then we also feel it when we are alone. Some might call it a longing for home. Home might bring up ideas of love and happiness, but for some the thought of home might hurt more than help.
What if this holiday season was not merely an invitation to tinsel, lights, and spending more, but an invitation to remember that each of us has a home—a home with God. It’s a place where family resides, hope abides, laughter is abundant, joy is endless, peace is plentiful, and love is everywhere. The season of Advent is your invitation to come Home for Christmas.
Hope – This world is not like the home we long for.
Peace – We long for homes that display the peace of God.
Joy – Even during dreariness there is the experience of God’s joy.
Love – We are blessed to love others as God first loved us.
