Home Sweet Home


There's no place like

HOME

is what she said

three times

as she

tapped those red shoes

that she was given at the beginning of her

journey

Once upon a time

when

Dorothy

arrived

Somewhere over the Rainbow.

There's no place like

Home.

Home~

where

so many that we know

have already

entered.

Home~

where yesterday

another precious one

entered

and not because

she was wearing red shoes.

She is

Home~

she is free,

REALLY free..

not just feeling free

not just feeling peace

not just feeling joy

not just feeling hope

Because her hope became a reality.

Her

Once Upon a time . . .

is now

. . . Happily Ever After~

Forever

and ever

and ever . . .

Because He said it would be

the moment

she

Put Him in Her Story.

He

gave her the gift

just as He promised~

And if I go and prepare a place for you,

I will come back and

take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. John 14:3

He took her

home~

where there is

No more pain

No more tears

for

Karin

because

she is

Home.

Because

while she was here

she lived

with her eyes fixed

not on what is seen, but on what is unseen,

since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Though outwardly

she was

wasting away,

due to an illness

but

she

believed

the words

that

He Put in Her Story~

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an

eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Eternal Glory~

Home~

This world is not what it was meant to be All this pain, all this suffering There's a better place Waiting for me In Heaven​*

Home

Where every fear is gone I'm in your open arms Where I belong*

Home

Every tear will be wiped away

Every sorrow and sin erased

We'll dance on seas of amazing grace

In Heaven (*Home, Chris Tomlin)

Home~

an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. 2 Corinthians 5:1

But

tears remain here on earth right now

for those who had to say good bye

to their

mother

to their

grandmother

to their

friend

because she will be missed.

Karin~

a woman

with a heart

so big

that she gave it to so many

because

she first gave her

heart to

Jesus.

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.

Do you believe this?” John 11:25-26

Well

Karin

did

Believe,

so

she

is

Home.

We all have a

Karin

in our lives

who we miss terribly

because they are

Home.

So let's

Put Him in Our Story

because

He is

the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,

who comforts us in all our troubles,

so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.

For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:3-5

And

‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

Revelations 21:4
