This quote is from Austen’s 1815 novel, Emma, and while it may not be purely inspirational, I found it to be extremely true. Often times, when I’m out and about for a lengthy time, I long to be home in its comfort. I think that all of us have felt this in some way or the other. I’m often dreaming of places I want go, across oceans and over land, not remembering that the most comforting place on Earth is right under my feet and over my head. Later in my life, being home won’t be such an easy task to complete, so I must learn to cherish it. For now, this is where God has placed me, and I shouldn’t take that for granted. I belong wherever He sends me, and at this moment, that is home. Where has God placed you?
