I married at the age of eighteen. Soon after, as a young bride I moved over 1,000 miles away from family and the familiarity of my childhood home. It was both an adventure and a culture shock; there are vast differences between the Northeast and states in the Deep South. I made the adjustments , yet kept close ties to family and friends back home.
Trips back to the home-place during the early years of our marriage were sporadic and special. I can recall the feelings of anticipation as I planned for visits, the 24-hour drive and the first sight of our house in Mycenae. I was home.
I’m lookin' forward to goin’ home!
“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God; believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know (John 14:1-4 NKJ).”
