Too Much

I have been trying to think of something wonderful to say - and it's just not happening. Too much on my mind to be able to really focus on one thing and expound on it.

So I leave you this: MercyMe - Homesick


You're in a better place, I've heard a thousand times
And at least a thousand times I've rejoiced for You
But the reason why I'm broken, the reason why I cry
Is how long must I wait to be with You

I close my eyes and I see Your face
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
I've never been more homesick than now

Help me Lord cause I don't understand Your ways
The reason why I wonder if I'll ever know
But, even if You showed me, the hurt would be the same
Cause I'm still here so far away from home

I close my eyes and I see Your face
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't You give me strength to make it through somehow
I've never been more homesick than now

In Christ, there are no goodbyes
And in Christ, there is no end
So I'll hold onto Jesus with all that I have

To see You again
To see You again

And I close my eyes and I see Your face
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't You give me strength to make it through somehow

Won't You give me strength to make it through somehow
Won't You give me strength to make it through somehow

I've never been more homesick than now

Beautiful..., and sad.

I hope you're feeling better. You continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. (And I'm not just saying that.)

You've been on my mind, too. I wish there was something I could do. If I was there, we could have a playdate and have some wine while the kids run around like crazy people.

Good but sad song.

I hope things start going better for you and you get less homesick soon!
