My piano is home. It makes me so happy to have it back where it belongs. I scheduled its delivery the afternoon the wood flooring was finished, and I am thankful that the moving company had an opening the very next morning.
While I pined away for my piano over the past few weeks, I realized that since I was 5 or 6 years old, I haven't lived in a home without my own piano. This one has gone to all my homes with me, including a tiny, married-housing, university apartment when I first moved out on my own. You can read more about that in another post by clicking here.

Yesterday as I dusted it and then played a little tune, I was rejoicing that it was back home! I couldn't help but think that I was behaving as if it were a long lost child who had finally returned home. And that made me think of the parable of the lost sheep:  "Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep."  Our Father in Heaven loves us more than we can imagine. (More than I love my piano! lol)  I am so grateful that there is rejoicing in Heaven over each one of us who comes to know Him. The celebration that I had over my piano returning home is nothing compared to the celebration in Heaven for a soul that will spend eternity there. And the feeling we will have as we arrive at the gates of Heaven someday will be the greatest homecoming we've ever known! I am so grateful for the promise of Heaven.

  1. Let me be the first to welcome your piano back into your home!! It looks good in it's new place. I'm sure it would love a little bit of tuning in a while also. :)
