We spend a lot of time on the concept of home. We try to find the right house, invite over friends, or spend time with family. We decorate. We might even search out long-lost family members.
Family today is created in a variety of ways. But even as our definitions of family have changed, the one true home we always have is not a physical place but a spiritual one. In the end, that is the only home that matters because it is defined by His loving kindness. It is the one that will bring us peace.
I talk more about this particular painting, and the inspiration Psalm that goes with it, in my book, Painting the Psalms.
