Harvest dec 2018

Where is home? Recently, our middle child, Paton, drew a picture of his home. Well, at least he started to. He
then quickly erased it and proceeded to draw a picture of his “homes”. One in Cambodia, one in California and one in
Idaho. I think that summarizes our feelings this Christmas. Feeling torn between multiple worlds, with lots of mixed
emotions. But in the midst of it all, remembering the One who left his heavenly home, to become a little baby, born to
a poor family who didn’t even have the ability to give him a “proper” resting place for his birth. He lived, suffered and
died, looking to, “the joy that was set before him” (Heb. 12:2). And so, as our family goes through a season of feeling
displaced, our desire is that it would only serve as a reminder that this world is not our ultimate home. We have an-
other city, an everlasting and eternal city with God in heaven and our place is there – and Jesus, right now, is preparing
that place for us. And so our hearts begin to fill with joy, for our satisfaction does
not need to come from having a place to call home here on earth, but rather it is
found in the assured hope of a heavenly home. And therefore we aim to live our Prayer Corner:
