Kinda Homesick

Beulah Land

I'm kind of homesick for a country
To which I've never been before.
No sad goodbyes will there be spoken
for time won't matter anymore.

Beulah Land, I'm longing for you
and some day on thee I'll stand.
There my home shall be eternal.
Beulah Land -- Sweet Beulah Land

Verse 2
I'm looking now across the river
where my faith will end in sight.
There's just a few more days to labor.
Then I will take my heavenly flight.


This beautiful song was a song my Pappaw loved & some sweet friends sang it at his funeral years ago.
Today (& lately) I'm really feeling like the lyrics to this song. I'm a little bit "over" the world & honestly feel a constant growing alienation by it. 
The precious loved ones that I have there only make the idea of Heaven even sweeter. 
Then on days like the past few, when I have experienced some amazing worship that must be a small picture of what it will be like in Heaven, I can't help but feel a little homesick for what awaits.
I've said it once today. I'll say it again. Lord, come quickly!
