Most people move
At least several times
During their lives;
Relocation around the corner
Or immigration across continents.

Leaving the familiar
Can be traumatic and stressful,
Or exciting and challenging.

New places bring change;
Different views,
New relationships;
While favourite possessions
Create a sense of belonging

One thing that never changes
Is the presence of God.
Where there is peace,
Contentment and love,
This is home.
