Longing for Heaven's glory

There's a great song that has been playing recently on the radio by Mercy Me called "Finally Home". It expresses the hearts' desire so eloquently and beautifully. Whenever I hear it I change a few words to fit my heart and fill my eyes with tears of longing. Heaven will be far better than any song we can sing on earth, but until then we sing melodies and hymns that fill our hearts with love for the savior, and in most cases, love for our loved ones there before us.

Even if you've heard the song before, I encourage you to take a minute to read the lyrics and ponder their meaning. I've changed a few of the words, the writer sings about seeing his dad in Heaven while I sing about being with our daughter. Oh and also, if you want to watch the music video (far better than just reading the lyrics), click here. Be sure and have your kleenex nearby.


Finally Home
by Mercy Me

I’m gonna wrap my arms around my Molly's neck
And tell her that I’ve missed her.
And tell her all about the mom that I became
And hope that it pleased her

There’s so much I want to say
There’s so much I want you to know

Chorus
When I finally make it home
When I finally make it home

Then I’ll gaze upon the throne of the King
Frozen in my steps
And all the questions that I swore I would ask
Words just won’t come yet

So amazed at what I’ve seen
So much more than this old mind can hold

Chorus

Bridge
And the sweetest sound my ears have yet to hear
Voices of the angels

Chorus

What a beautiful song! Even more beautiful than that is the new picture of Molly you have posted! Her eyes are beautiful!!! So wide & bright. Thanks for sharing!

I can't wait to read your book. I have not a clue how publishing & all that works...but if it for some reason doesn't make it out to Indiana, please let me know how I can get one.

You remain in my thoughts and prayers.
