Going Home

A homeschool icon left this earth for a better place yesterday. HSLDA's Chris Klicka fought a 15 year battle with MS and "won" ... though not in the way that many might define winning. I have alternated between rejoicing and weeping with his wife, Tracy, as she documented Chris's final struggle with MS on their CaringBridge page. Being close in age to someone who graduates to heaven can bring the realities of life into sharp focus. I can only hope that I finish my life's journey as well as Chris has.

Bits and pieces of Sara Grove's song, Going Home, have been invading my thoughts over the past 24 hours. I have it playing in the background as I write this ...

Of going home, I'll meet you at the table
Going home, I'll meet you in the air
And you are never too young to think about it
Oh, I cannot wait to be home.

I'm confined by my senses
To really know what you are like
You are more than I can fathom
And more than I can guess
And more than I can see with you in sight.

But I have felt you with my spirit
I have felt you fill this room
And this is just an invitation
Just a sample of the whole
And I cannot wait to be going home.

Going home, I'll meet you at the table
Going home, I'll meet you in the air
And you are never too young to think about it
Oh, I cannot wait to be going, to be going home.


May we all be looking forward to going home ...

Blessings ...
