The Meaning of Home

A house is where you live. But a home is where you family is. It is a place where you snuggle in bed and seek shelter from a storm. You can take your bike for a ride. Memories are made in a home like the beginning of a wonderful family trip. The best memories are made when a friend comes over to my home or when my mom made me my first quilt or when my dad assembled his first train set and I was able to play with it. Sometimes home is just a moment where there is time for laughter or tears. It is a safe place to come after a long day at school and best of all, Jesus lives in my house. A home is built with love, happiness and family. A house is not like a home. The four walls around you don’t matter. All you need is family and a shelter to have a home.
