Then Sings My Soul Saturday: Temporary Home



Saw/heard this one for the first time Friday morning and was moved to tears. How much we need to remind ourselves that what we have now is temporary.



Temporary Home
Carrie Underwood

Little boy, 6 years old
A little too used to being alone
Another new mom and dad
Another school
Another house that'll never be home

And 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 no where 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 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 is 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

I love Carrie Underwood, but I've never heard this song before. What a beautiful reminder of the fact that we are only here for a moment. Our true home is waiting for us in Heaven!

Carrie is so pretty. I believe she has another hit song. Thank God He is using her. Blessings ~
