Where is Home?

Where is home? For a lot of us, it’s easy to point to that parcel of land, with its building and the things inside that make it their home. For an unfortunate number, there’s no home, but under the elements, with their misshapen belongings and a shredded piece of carton as their bed.

For a good number of us who are sojourners in various lands, ourΒ home has come to mean more than our physical abode. In my opinion, one of the sides of having lived in 3 Continents at various points in my life is that each of these places captures a piece of your heart with its essence and represents home one way or the other.

Over the years, my homes have differed from country to country, I have had to shed material belongings over and over, but I have ultimately gathered beautiful experiences and memories on my path with my family.

  1. Nice. I can relate to having lived in a number of different places, in different countries and I know what you mean about each place taking a different space in your heart. The people. The experiences. All valuable and have helped make us who we are. πŸ™‚

  3. This got me thinking, J. I’ve run off to many different places but I feel home is the place that I feel secure and able to let my guard down. Home is inside. It’s a place I feel accepted. It is so easy to get caught up in wanting things but they are just things.
