Temporary home

>>>A little boy, six years old
A little too used to being alone
Another new mom and dad
Another school, another house that will never be home
When people ask him how he likes this place
He looks up and says with a smile upon his face:

>>>This is my temporary home, it’s not where I belong

Windows and rooms that I’m passing through
This is just a stop on the way to where I’m going
I’m not afraid because I know
This is my temporary home

>>>Young mom, on her own
She needs a little help, got nowhere to go
She’s looking for a job, looking for a way out
‘Cause a halfway house will never be a home
At night she whispers to her baby girl
“Someday we’ll find our place here in this world”

This is our temporary home, it’s not where we belong
Windows and rooms that we’re passing through
This is just a stop on the way to where we’re going
I’m not afraid because I know
This is our temporary home

Old man, hospital bed
The room is filled with people he loves
And he whispers
“Don’t cry for me, I’ll see you all someday”
He looks up and says
“I can see God’s face”

This is my temporary home, it’s not where I belong
Windows and rooms that I’m passing through
This was just a stop on the way to where I’m going
I’m not afraid because I know
This was my temporary home

This is our temporary home

—-Such an important thing to remember: we came into this world with nothing and we leave with nothing. Be strategic during your time here; value relationships over material possessions. Any phase of life you are struggling through is not the end of life and is not the full picture of your life. It is just a chapter of the huge plan! We are here temporarily – that definitely reminded me to live each day to the fullest, but also that this is not the “end all”. Thanks for reading! XO
