Longing for Home


Maybe at the heart
of all our traveling
is the dream of someday,
somehow, getting Home.

Not far from home

Our fair morning
is at hand;
the day-star is near
the rising,
and we are not many
miles from home.

–Samuel Rutherford

Thinking of heaven


Think of . . .
stepping on shore and finding it HEAVEN
taking hold of a hand and finding it GOD’S HAND
breathing new air and finding it CELESTIAL air
feeling invigorated and finding it IMMORTALITY
passing from storm and tempest into UNBROKEN CALM
waking up and finding it HOME.

–Robert E. Selle
