Home Is Where I Want to Be!


I’m sure that home to many has a different meaning.

It depends what kind of life

 they’ve been receiving.


There are those with memories of hurt and pain.

Some may not want to mention their families name.


Others have childhood memories they are fond of...

They may have a family that they’re proud of!


I think that in many cases, home is not what people see.

It has a lot of importance. 

Both to you and me!


What home means to me is to have our family together.

And ask the Lord to bless it, with his love forever!


God gave me a wife and children to take care of.

May we not do things that we’d be ashamed of!


I invite YOU Jesus, to be the head of our home!

May we come together as a family,

around your throne!


May our family serve

 one another as we should.

May the truths of God’s word

 be applied and understood!


May the Lord help us to get along,

 with our imperfections.

May God’s word be our “road map,” for needed direction!


There’s no perfect home.  Believe me!  I know it!

When it comes to family time…  We all need to show it!


Unless the lord builds the home… 

They labor in vain that build it!

Let’s seek God’s blessing!  So his love can completely fill it!


Please come Jesus!  And fill our home today!

May our home be honored by what YOU do and say!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
