Home is where I can relax and breath.  It’s the one place in the world that I know I won’t be judged or ridiculed.  The one place that the brand of my jeans, or make of my car don’t matter.

My maker thinks I’m perfect, and that is all that matters, but out in the deep; in the fray; lies are engulfing.  No longer a whisper easy to press away, but a siren beckoning to it’s deadly trap.  It is easier to take the bait than to help truth rise.  Yet, in the distance, so dim I can barely be sure of what my eyes truly see, there is a light.  It warms my heart. It gives me hope.  It holds me like a dear child, caresses my cheek, and embraces me with love, unfailing.

Hesitant, I join the light, though I can see not where it leads, and slowly, one step at a time, I press forward.

I can make a shape out ahead of me.  I close my eyes and fill my lungs with anticipation.

My eyelashes part, and I find that the light has once again led me

    Kelley, that was beautiful. I love your imagery! I found myself holding my breath as your eyelashes parted. How wonderful to serve a God who loves us enough to call us home… especially when we get deafened by those sirens!
