A White Washed World

Went for a walk today in the sub-zero temperature of Ontario.
Definitely underestimated the wet cold and how it digs into your bones,
didn't think I would need gloves in the sunshine weather...
I was wrong.
 I do love my farm though and being here.
I've been reminded this year though of how
heaven, or perhaps more aptly, just to be with God
 will always be my only real true home.
May I live in that knowledge, 
that I am on  a journey in this life, 
heading home. 

"These all died in faith, not having received the things promised,
but having seen them and greeted them from afar,
and having acknowledged that they were strangers and exiles on the earth.
 For people who speak thus make it clear that they are seeking a homeland.
 If they had been thinking of that land from which they had gone out,
they would have had opportunity to return.
But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one.
Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared for them a city." 
-Hebrews 11:13-16
