Love is reflected in home
“What language do you speak at home?” As an American married to a Frenchman, I am asked that a lot. Actually, we mix things up quite a bit. But one thing is sure—whatever the vocabulary du jour, in our home we speak the language of divine Love.
I have moved 18 times throughout the United States, England, and France, and am even now preparing to move to a new apartment. With these changes, I have learned that real home is not defined by a type of building, a place, certain people, a culture, a language, or by stuff we own. All that can change. Spiritually considered, home is an awareness of the ever-presence of divine Love. It is not a place so much as the consciousness of God’s love. As the reflection—the image—of Love, we each have an innate capacity to express love and to feel loved. Home, as an awareness of Love, is actually built into one’s spiritual identity. And the more in-touch we are with God’s love, the more we can feel rooted and at home in any place or situation.
