September 11th 2011
Please observe one minutes silence in memory of 9/11 2001


Coming Home
I remember as part of my management training I would take charge of various shops up and down the country whilst their manager was on holiday. On my return journey home I remember the elation as I saw the stone walled embankment on the approach to Bradford Railway Station. 

There is no place like home.

Home is where the heart is.

Jesus promised He would prepare a place for us in His Fathers house.

What a homecoming it will be.


  1. What refreshing thoughts to see when you are away from "home" in more ways than one!

  2. Lovely, Jackie. Nicely said.

  3. How often after a person's died we hear someone say they've "gone home."
    Peace and Blessings

  4. I love the idea of "coming home" to Heaven like returning to what's familiar and loved here on earth. Thank you for a beautiful snapshot to hold in my heart today.

  5. Aww, Tracy, I was going to say the same thing! It was short and sweet! :)

  6. Love the way you wrote this... very short, and perfectly to the point. Thanks!!

  7. I always feel that way after a holiday as we turn into our road. Then the thought of a visit to Sainsburys steals the moment !
    A lot of folk went home on 9/11 - some of them felt a different welcome to the one they were expecting.

  8. Wot no Morrisons?

    True and how will people know the Way unless we show them.

  9. Succinct but meaningful. Well done.

  10. I was born and spent half my life in England. The way you say things reminds me of *that* home :)

    Thank you for visiting my blog.

  11. Hey Jack,

    You said a lot in a very short time. Well said.
    9/11 was a wake-up call. Those who went to work that day, or got on a flight that day, had no idea that the day would be their last here. We should prepare our own hearts, never knowing what a day may bring forth.
