“Jesus answered and said to him, ‘If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.’”—John 14:23
One of the songs we hear at this time of year is “There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays.” But maybe the idea of being home for Christmas doesn’t always give you a warm feeling deep inside, or maybe it’s not even a possibility to travel home this year.
Home, for me, was sort of a blank when I was growing up. I never really had what you would call a home. We lived in houses, we lived in apartments, and we lived in hotel rooms. Sometimes, we stayed in other people’s houses. Because my mother was running around living her crazy life, I never had anything even resembling a home.
