You Can Come Home Now

Coming home to yourself

42
You Can Come Home Now
Laura Peck

Each morning is a new opportunity,

You can come home now.

Each step away is never too far,

You can come home now.

No matter what you have done or have neglected to do,

You can come home now,

You are welcome here.

"Welcome home," the Voice of Love says.

Come home to where you are safe and sound, where nothing can trap you or bring forth mountains of fear.

You can come home now, you are safe here.

And if you've been away, gone off like the Prodigal Son, you can still come home,

Now is better than ever.

You can come home now,

There are open arms waiting for you.

Arms out wide, we welcome you back in.

Welcome back to you,

The you that was made by the Creator of all things,

The you that has a purpose far beyond anything you could ever dream up, the you that houses the Living, the Divine.

Because guess what?

You were made good,

And you have always been good.

Come back home, let yourself be embraced and loved,

There is nothing too dirty, there is nothing too raw, there is nothing too much or too little,

Just as you are,

You are welcomed home.

You can come home to yourself now, to the you that you were created to be.

Rest in the arms of love,

These arms never fail, they are always holding you.

You can come home to yourself now, you can come home to love.

Thanks be to God.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?

12943

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
