A place called home. (Graphic below by Kerry Messer )
There have been many places I have called home; some for just months, others for years. My first home was Kenton, Tennessee, for about 16 years; and now, Satsuma, Alabama is where I hang my hat. 🙂 Actually, this is my second time to live here. The first time was long ago, in another life.
Satsuma, round two, is full circle for me. A redo you could say. November 1975, I called Satsuma home as a woman who knew a lot about GOD but with NO assurance that I was His and He was mine. In His grace and goodness that changed on November 18, 1975 at right about 9:00 pm when I surrendered my pride and stubborn will to the Savior, JESUS CHRIST the Righteous. We walked together in sweet fellowship for many years through many places and a couple States.
Today, I am here again, a new wife for almost ten years now. A new address in the same community; a new name in the same church. Day after day Satsuma reminds me that ABBA gives do-overs.
From here where will we go? ABBA knows. This I know:
2 In my Father’s house are many places to live. If there weren’t, I would have told you; because I am going there to prepare a place for you. 3 Since I am going and preparing a place for you, I will return to take you with me; so that where I am, you may be also. [source] John 14:2-3
