Kevin's Tribute Video

For anyone interested, the tribute video that was made for Kevin's memorial service is up on our churchs' website. Just click and scroll to the bottom....

As I was listening again to the lyrics of Homesick (the 2nd song in the video), there was a verse that caught my attention that made me think. Here is the whole song, and I'll italic and color the lines that stuck out to me....

You're in a better place, I've heard a thousand times
And at least a thousand times I've rejoiced for you
But the reason why I'm broken, the reason why I cry
Is how long must I wait to be with you

I close my eyes and I see your face
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
I've never been more homesick than now

Help me Lord cause I don't understand your ways
The reason why I wonder if I'll ever know
But, even if you showed me, the hurt would be the same
Cause I'm still here so far away from home

I close my eyes and I see your face
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
I've never been more homesick than now

In Christ, there are no goodbyes
And in Christ, there is no end
So I'll hold onto Jesus with all that I have
To see you again

To see you again

And I close my eyes and I see your face
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
Won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
Won't you give me strength to make it through somehow

I've never been more homesick than now

Love that song.....

Yeah this song helps me get by...and did for a long time. I'm finding it helping me get by again.

Some times I'm completely fine and others I'm crying like I am now. Some times it hurts really bad and some times I'm so overwhelmed with encouragement. It's so real. I can't believe it's already been two weeks and then some.

Thanks for writing out these lyrics for me to see and read again. I'm amazed at that video, but it gets me every time.

I hope you're hanging in there. I love you!

This song means a lot to me too, there are quite a few faces that I can't wait to see again!! Picturing them so happy without any pain is awesome, but still missing them lots! It was nice having you at night MOPS again!!
