Between Two Worlds

Or, well, at least two houses.  Right now we're not exactly in either, but the weight is tipping toward the new home.  Anywho, the thought that came to mind was that this is rather how we Christians live in this world.  The old "home" isn't quite home anymore, and though we like to spend all our time in the new, it's not quite possible to do so without reverting to the old again and again.  Back and forth.  But we know where we'll be ending up as Christians and that's a comfort for us:  He has prepared us a house not made with hands, eternal, in the heavens as St. Paul put it in 2 Cor. 5; or as our Lord says it:  "I go to prepare a place for you."  Here we have no lasting city, but we look for one to come.  Home.
