I have always searched for a place where I belong. I think many people are searching for a place where they are known, and loved imperfections and all. Of course now that I am an adult I can truly appreciate all the Thanksgivings, Christmases, and random Saturdays that my family gathered around my mother’s kitchen table. With my brother sister and their spouses, and all the grandkids, my mom needed to put in the extra leaf of the table when all her kids and grandkids were home. I wish I realized as a child and teen how much I would treasure the memories of those celebrations now that I am an adult. I want to give my children those same kind of memories. As they grow older I want our home to be the place that they gather, where they know that they are loved for who they are. I also want to share God’s love, with them, so that they know that God loves them and is by their side wherever they go.
And, now just for fun because when I heard the word place I thought of this song.
