Nice job and very touching. We are Ambassadors here for Christ, this is not our home. That is a great perspective to have.
Thank you for sharing this vitally important message with us. This sounded authentic, if condolences on your loss.

But, the message from the LORD to the MC, was so right on. This is our temporary home, and our permanent home is waiting for us, where we will share with loved ones, and most important, with the LORD!

Poignant, well written, and a touching reminder of how our lives can change in a wink of an eye.

God bless you~
Great piece of writing. I liked the way you included short sentences, for variation. Thank you for sharing. God bless.
I liked the sentences that headed the new phase of life. The "but you aren't home yet." struck me powerfully. Great message.
What a poignant story! Your first paragraph was a bit confusing to me. About marriage and moving- at first, I thought it was your mother's marriage, but then realized it was your own. Your story proves the point that home is where the heart is.
Joy, love to hear your stories. Such a bitter sweet memory; a home for you to share with your loved one. Yes, this is not our home and the Lord teaches us how to find joy and rest in Him.

I too am in my house without my husband, since he has to be in skilled nursing care. I don’t think he will every return to our earthly home but we still have sweet times together, singing to the Lord. Our hope of heaven is very real.

Praying God’s blessing over you and that you will be comforted by His Spirit.
