Where Do I Turn?

Where do I turn when my heart aches
or when I’m overwhelmed with care?
Can I handle it all myself
or will someone my burdens share?

As I cry out during the night,
who listens to my urgent plea?
Why do I forget my Father
is always waiting to help me?

There is sorrow within my heart
that only God can understand.
He will comfort my weary soul
as we walk through life hand in hand.

Going Hme

When we were at Omaha with Franklin,
Tracy and their family we went out several
times driving to see the sights. Every time
we were barely gone from the house when
Garrison, who’s almost 3, started saying,
“When are we going home?” Home means a
lot to Garrison. I started reflecting on what
home means to me. I love going to visit my
family, friends, and new places, but I’m
always ready to go home.

For Christians this life on earth is temporary.
It’s just our temporary home. Heaven, that’s
really our home! When we think about God
and Jesus being in Heaven, do we ever think,
“When am I going home?” Isn’t that the place
we want all of our family and friends to be, too.
One place where we can all be together with
our Heavenly Father and our Savior. No place
can be better than that.
