Do you sometimes feel homeless even in your home?

The truth about it is, whether we is rich or poor or somethin in between, this earth ain't no final restin place. So in a way, we is all homeless--just workin our way toward home.

--Denver Moore (homeless man) in Same Kind of Different As Me

This man (Denver Moore), though homeless must have realized that even rich people can feel homeless sometimes. 
I think this happens to some women who once worked outside the home, but then choose to stop and become homemakers.  When our families start feeling the loss of our incomes, don't some of us start thinking of  the physical structure of our homes as belonging to our husband's since they are bringing the paycheck home?
Well, news for us all.  These homes or apartments etc., that we are living in, really belong to God and he's just letting us use them for a time.  Sure we are paying to stay in them, but everything first belonged to the Creator.
Then why may we ask, don't  some of us have as nice of  homes as others?  Well, I think that is a silly question to ask.  We should instead be focusing on the fact that we are not homeless.
Also Christians should be focusing on the fact that once we are saved our true home will one day be with the Father.
I never hope I have to be homeless here on earth to remember to appreciate what God allows me to use of his while I'm just a passing through.
