Where is my mind?

Twice overnight the thought ran through my mind that I REALLY like this house we're renting and that it'll be hard to leave it in June. Then we read this in our morning devotion time:
Colossians 3:1-2 NIV 1Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. 2Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
Oops. Turn my eyes to things above. I guess that doesn't involve a nice house here on earth, does it? It was just the re-tuning that my mind required. Not that it is bad to appreciate the earthly things I have, I just need perspective, God's perspective. Especially in this transitory life of moving around that God has given me.
