he is home

for the someone that wants to "climb the stairs to heaven and bring" my dad "back home"...

Just so you know... he IS home. Right where he is.

And he said, "These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15Therefore,
"they are before the throne of God
and serve him day and night in his temple;
and he who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them.
16Never again will they hunger;
never again will they thirst.
The sun will not beat upon them,
nor any scorching heat.
17For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd;
he will lead them to springs of living water.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

Revelation 7:15-17

I'm pretty sure he wouldn't want to leave home to come back here. I'm just as sure that I wouldn't ask him to. Do I miss him? Every minute of every day. In fact, I need to talk to him about something right now. I need to hear his voice. To hear him say, "Oh, baby, this is nothing new" or "Let go and let God" or "remember who you are and whose you are" or just "I love you." I so need to hear something from him tonight. But as much as I may need him, he needs to be right where he is. Home. With his Father. He knows we'll join him soon.

This is home
This is Home - Switchfoot
I've got my memories
They're always
Inside of me
But I can't go back
Back to how it was
I believe it now
I've seen too much
But I can't go back
Back to how it was
Created for a place
I've never known

This is home
Now I'm finally
Where I belong
Where I belong
Yeah, this is home
I've been searching
For a place of my own
Now I've found it
Yeah, this is home
Yeah, this is home

Belief over misery
I've seen the enemy
And I won't go back
Back to how it was
And I've got my heart
Set on
What happens next
I've got my eyes wide
And it's not over yet
We are miracles
And we're not alone


And now after all
My searching
After all my questions
I'm gonna call it home
I've got
A brand new mindset
I can finally see
The sunset
I'm gonna call it home


Now I know
Yeah, this is home
I've come too far
No, I won't go back

I heard this song a few months ago and I love it. I especially like the last verse. I have done my fair share of questioning but i long for the day when I can be home.
