While talking on the phone with Rick tonight I could her Faith barking and longed to have her at my side, giving me goodnight doggie kisses. I miss the scent of home, the sound of home, the feel of home in Rick's embrace.
Yet even as what is so familiar and beloved feels far away I can hear the Spirit whisper "There will ever be a longing, for even that place is not your home"
"But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ" Philippians 3:20
