99 Days of Gratitude Day 7-Home

I am feeling blessed today because God has given the gift of home.

When I was young my family made home for me. When I was in college my roommates made up home for me. In the work I do daily my colleagues make home. My son’s make home for me. My Husband makes home for me.

So what is home?

It’s not your location or the bricks and the mortar.

It’s a safe space that you find truth, joy, peace and hope. A place where people love you unconditionally with grace, truth and forgiveness.

My awesome friends and I are reading a book. In one of the chapters it’s speaks of truth and grace. It says, “When you combine truth and grace you yield forgiveness.” However truth without grace becomes judgment.

I am grateful to have home.

Home for me is a safe space in my life which is authentic, filled with grace, unconditional love, forgiveness, joy and hope.

I am second. I will share my experiences, as a child of God, husband to Daniel, father, best friend, brother, son, leader, professor, writer and photographer. My intention for this blog is to be random, with no plan, no list, no direction and no expectations. Very different from how I lived my past life. My journey has been blessed by the mercy and grace of God and unwavering love. I hope you enjoy reading and sharing my experiences of hurts, laughter, discovery, friendships, Christ, and my family. Temenos is a safe circle where you can be yourself with peace of mind. Temenos originates from a Greek word which refers to a universal instinct to create a protected, safe space in which to heal, restore and regenerate yourself. My temenos circle is a place to be still and seek Jesus. It becomes my place to pray, reflect in the word of our Lord to shrink, grow in him, and heal my soul. What is your temenos circle?
