HOME: Where the Heart Is

I am coming home.

I resigned my job at the bank
in a neighboring county
and I am coming home. 

There's nothing quite like home.
Home is not just a location.
As they say, 
"Home is where the heart is."

My heart is in many places 
so I find "home" to be 
more than one place. 

It's where I am 
when  I'm with my children
and my big boy, 
Nashville, TN.

It's where I am 
when I'm spending time with the man
whom I've loved 
for more than 35 years.

It's the quiet moments of 
the early morning 
when I'm alone with my Maker,
whether I'm sitting on the sofa 
in my living room 
or the sands 
of the seashore 
basking in HIS wondrous creation.

It's where I am when I'm 
giving and sharing with 
a group of young people 
who are REAL,
who truly desire to know 
that God is REAL
and that 
Someone loves them.

It is with this group that I am free to be 
known and loved anyway.

It's where I am when I'm creating
because God created
and continues to create beauty from ashes.

He constantly reminds me to 
come HOME.

He reminds that my frame was not hidden from 
Him when I was made in the secret place. 

where the light is always on
and the door is always open.

my heart feels at home, 



  1. That is a truly beautiful, inspired writing, Bonnie. I love HOME, too. It is more than just a house-and you voiced it beautifully here- xo Diana

  2. Good for you! Enjoy my friend. Those are some very precious reasons to be Home......Blessings!

  3. Good morning Bonnie! It's so good to meet you; you came to visit last night I believe, and I always like to welcome new faces.

    HOME? It's where my heart is, and though I am a teacher and enjoy being out with people, both my husband and I enjoy our favorite part of the day, and that's coming HOME.

    I love the name of your blog! ALL WHITE is gorgeous in my home!



I love the friendships I have developed through blogging. Visit and comment and I'll be sure to drop by and talk to you.
