Our true home

"Where did you used to live?" a friend asked me.
At home, of course.
"And where was that home?" he persisted.
Far, far away across the high seas,
Beyond the forests and mountains of Africa.

Later, alone with myself, I questioned:
Was I right?
As I prayed and listened,
The truth dawned:
Never, for a split second,
Had I dwelt outside my Father's home.

Neither you nor I have ever left
Our permanent home in God's kingdom
Which Christ Jesus said "... is within you,"
Luke 17:21. And Science explains as "... within reach 
of man's consciousness here."
Science and Health, p. 576.

Our true home is in our hearts
Where God's love, harmony, and peace reign supreme.
