There's No Place Like Home

When I was a little girl I would watch the Wizard of Oz and see Dorothy tap her red shoes together and say, “There’s No Place Like Home”. I never really understood this statement until I moved 500 miles from my childhood home. After being married a short 9 days, I moved with my husband from Texas to Mississippi to follow God’s calling for our lives. I struggled through most of our first year of marriage because I so badly wanted to tap my red shoes together and say “There’s No Place Like Home” and land back in Texas, but I quickly eventually realized that I had to make my life with my husband home and no matter where life may take us I would always be a Texas girl at heart. I now love where we are at and I know that if I had not followed God’s plan for my life, then things would have been miserable. I have learned over the past 2 years that there is no place like home, but home can be anywhere and can even be in two places. I desire to illustrate that no matter where you live or visit “There’s No Place Like Home”.
