Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.  Colossians 3:2
It has been almost 2 months since my sister left for Heaven.  There is a song by Mercy Me called "Homesick" and the words are exactly what I feel in my heart.  I close my eyes and see her face and I just want to be there with her.  But I know that God has more for me to do here on earth.  My kids to raise, my family to get to know better and hopefully more people to witness to for my Lord and Savior.  I am homesick for Heaven…
…and Missouri !  For many years being in the military I have lived all over the world. I have been out in the world since 1985 and have not really had the desire to go home, I was content to be where the Lord put me.  I felt like home was where my heart was…but in the last couple of years my heart has been restless and feeling out of place.  Partly due to the losses I have endured but I think it is the Holy Spirit preparing me to move again.  I remember the day shortly after the funeral I was standing outside my mother’s house and leaves were turning already (early fall) and I had a peace…a peace about being where I belonged. I had not felt that in a long time.  A few hours later my daughter and I were in the car and a song came on the radio by a group named Sugarland.  The singer was singing "back in Missouri where they know me…"  yep it was my song…I believe that is the day I realized that home is truly in the heart!
