A Place Called Home: Quote by Richard Pelzer

April 13, 2007 at 10:17 pm Leave a comment

The value of one soul is greater than any single thing upon this earth. For there can be nothing greater than raising a child in preparation for the journey back to where he came from, a place where his immortal Father lives, a place known as heaven, a place called home.” ~ Richard Pelzer.

I chose this verse for my daughter’s Baby Dedication

After we fled our home due to domestic violence, I found the copy of this verse (that I had written down) thrown in the garbage bin. I don’t know what compelled me to look in the garbage, but the bin was so large that I was leaning into the bin, both legs off the ground, when I found this verse.

I believe that when you dedicate your life to God, He will be there for you–through everything. Finding this verse was a reminder of that. God was telling me that He will reach down into my life, even the mess, and rescue me. He will lead me from homelessness to a place called home.
