The day after my father-in-law passed away, this song came on the radio when Jason & I were driving to his mother's house. We both started bawling immediately.
Papaw never did belong here. He never did quite fit in. This is not where he belonged. This world was so very clearly not his home.
This song would come on the radio every. single. time. we got in the car for the next week. Every time. Multiple times a day.
We tried to find the artist.Went to the KLOVE website. This song was the featured video on the main page. Popped up as soon as we got to the site. We didn't even have to look for it. It was staring us in the face.
Two days ago, I was in the car with Jena. She started talking about Papaw going to Heaven. I turned the radio down to zero volume. Quite randomly, she asked me to turn the music up. This song had started playing.
I've liked this song since the first time I ever heard it, in a worship service at our church.
Now it has taken on an entirely new meaning, not only for me, but for our family.
You know what? I'm not home yet. But he is.
"All I know is I'm not home yet. This is not where I belong. Take this world and give me Jesus. This is not where I belong"
