My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.

Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young— a place near your altar,
O LORD Almighty, my King and my God.

Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you.” ~Psalm 84:2-4

Home: the place in which one's domestic affections are centered; a dwelling place, refuge, or retreat.

We are praising God that our nephew got to go home on Tuesday. He is 4 ½ months old now, and is out of the hospital for the first time. His homecoming was preceded by the delivery of several machines, extensive training for his parents regarding his care, and the securing of home nursing assistance. We are grateful that he is doing so well, getting stronger, and finally home. Praise God for the miracles so far in his little life!!

Speaking of going home, the kids released Rougher (the snake) back into the yard this morning. Assuming the cat doesn’t get to him first, they hope to see him again sometime. With his injured tail, I am sure we would recognize him. Live long and prosper, little Rougher!

(A side note, just as I was getting ready to publish this, the boys came home with five minnows they caught in a nearby creek. Oh, my! Welcome “home,” little fellas!)

**Update on March 9, 2008: The fish were finally returned to the creek several days later. Then we (I use the term "we" loosely) captured roly polys, a spider, and a bee. What fun! ha ha!**


  1. What an answer to prayer. We will continue to lift them up.

  2. Thanks so much for your comment on my blog! I am confident, like you said, that God is working all things for His glory! I am thankful to trust his heart as He sees things from an eternal perspective when my own view is so small.

    I loved checking out your blog! What a great name! :)

  3. I have LOVED your recent posts. You are a great writer.
    I was also glad to see that you are on your knees for my friend Amy and her family.
