One of the best feelings in the world to me is
having my husband and all my children sleeping under one roof!
Like a mama hen is content when all her chicks are safely under her wings,
my heart just soars when my family is all together again.

During Bible study today there was a phrase lovingly repeated
by a sweet older lady in our small group as we discussed
the different aspects of what Heaven will be like.
“We will all be together.”
It wasn’t just the words she was saying, but the tone of her voice…
the wonder and the joy-filled anticipation..that struck me to my core.
That is why I love the sweet times when we can gather again together.  
I have no words to describe it accurately but it comforts my heart to realize
that when we all get to Heaven someday WE WILL ALL BE TOGETHER again.
In the same place. Nevermore to be separated.

I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.
For you, God, have heard my vows;
you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
Psalm 61:4-5
