“I am a Sailor, I been in to many places, from East to West, from North to South. I saw the world! And I discovered one thing….. Home is the most beautiful place on earth." This is exactly the message written on a photo that was shared today by a Sailor friend in his Facebook account. Indeed, no other place could be more beautiful than our home. Thank God I have a home and I need not work far away from home.

My son was polishing off the chicken yesterday saying no food tastes like home food.. He will be at the university preparing for his exams which means that his weekend trips won';t happen until the end of November. I guess all the known and loved things makes the house a home.

Your son truly knows the difference because he is blessed enough to live in a home.

We have a saying "Home is where the heart is " I love above all things being with the people that I love :D For me where that happens to be is secondary :D

The people that we love matter most. Without them there can't be a home.

It really is where the heart is. I don't mind spending a lot of time traveling abroad, but there's no better place than home.

Many people are deprived of peace and it is a sad reality in this world. But what this earth could not give, the new earth will give plentifully and perfectly at that.

If you away from home surely home is beautiful heaven. But if you are in home you don't get such deep feeling.

Absence from your home makes you realize there is something in your home that can't be equaled by any place in this world.

"There is no place like home" is a quote by L. Frank Baum. I love this saying too. Only those who have a home will truly understand why he said so.

Okay. I get the sentiment, but as someone who enjoys travel, I can tell you that I have found more beautiful places in the world than the spot I chose for home. There are other factors to consider besides beauty. For lovely, several of the beaches along the coast of South Africa beat those in SoCal. But, for lifestyle and safety, I'm staying in on the California coast.

I got your point @ElizabethWallace. Indeed if we will take the word beautiful from the physical aspects, our place of abode can't compare to those grand places we have visited, but as I understand, my sailor friend used "beautiful" in another sense. It is more than what our eyes could see, but rather what the deepest part of our heart could feel. It is the joy of being with his loved ones again, it is the peace and comfort of being in his own familiar place, the sweet embrace of his little ones, the caring hands of her wife, the happiness of being able to carry and play with his pet dog again, the excitement of running with his children in his backyard, the delightful meals only his wife could cook. The joy of making sweet memories again with the people he valued most. I believe all these and more make his home the most beautiful place for him.

There really isn't any place like home. No matter where you go or how beautiful the place is, you are always ready to come home.
