They say "There's no place like Home!"
But how in the world would we know
If we didn't get out and roam a bit
That we might personally know it's so!

For all of our life we've heard the words
And seen sign of "Home Sweet Home,"
But for those occasional travellers--
There could also be, "Roam, Sweet Roam!"

For in this, Life need not be either/or
For there's a time and place for all things,
It's Good for us, in Life to have Roots--
But it's Good, too, to spread our wings!

Home, sweet Home and Roam, sweet Roam
Thank God for Life's varied views,
Times to get away and see new things--
And a Home we can come back to!



 "Our Creativity points to a Higher Creator--we couldn't have just happened, and for what ability we may possess--to God be the glory." -dlw-

Deleeme-
I liked this a lot.
Now that's a unique perspective.

Remember to 'follow the yellow-brick road.

"Home! And this is my room - and you are all here! And I'm not going to leave here ever again, because I love you all! And --- Oh, Auntie Em -----
there's no place like home!"

Very nice.

How do we know where we want to be if we don't roam once in awhile. Home will always call you back.
