She’s no longer homesick. Just me.

One of these days we’ll finally be
In a place where there's no more need
No more pain and no more grief
No more foolish disbelief

And all the joy there will be
When at last we finally see
One of these days

For me, today is very sad.
For her, it’s another glorious day in paradise.

For me, I still only dream about one of these days.
For her, today is that day. Every day now is that day. my mom

One of These Days
FFH
LYRICS

One of these days I'm gonna fly over the mountains
One of these days I'm gonna ride on the silver lining
One of these days I'm gonna witness what I've been missing
One of these days

One of these days I'm gonna do all the things that I've never done
I'm gonna finish all the races that I've run but I've never won
And I'm gonna see a million faces and recognize every one
One of these days

Chorus:
One of these days I’ll see the hand that took the nails for me
One of these days I’ll hold the key to the mansion built for me
One of these days I’ll walk the streets of gold that were paved for me
One of these days I’ll see my Savior face to face
One of these days

One of these days I'm gonna see just what became of me
On the day that I believed when you took myself from me
And I believe I will see
What I would have been if You hadn’t saved me
One of these days

And one of these days I'm gonna talk
With all the saints that have gone before
And in their sandals I will walk and we will sit along the shore
And I will learn everything that I never knew before
All this and more

One of these days we’ll finally be
In a place where there's no more need
No more pain and no more grief no more foolish disbelief
And all the joy there will be when at last we finally see
One of these days

Oh Lisa,praying for you...as you kept vigil...crying,"she's gone"... angels sang, "here she comes!"

Sweet, Sweet Sister,

As I sat here and listened to the song I couldn't help but cry with you. My dad passed away January 2010
Praise God, I also rejoice with you that we'll see our loved ones `One Of These Days.`

Michele Williams said...

Alright, I am so glad I did not put on make yet this morning. It is so difficult to see a loved one suffer here on earth...I too have a parent and two parent in laws in heaven. What a day of rejoicing it will be when we all get together in heaven!

Blessings dear sister.

We're never ready to lose our moms. But what a wonderful hope we have in Christ. Praying God will wrap you in his arms of comfort.

This is one of my favorite songs. I know you are doubly homesick these days. ~ God counts our tears, and if he counts the ones that others shed on our behalf as well, He is very much aware of the Lisa tears today.

Linda, I missed hearing about the passing of your mother. I was away from the internet last week, and I never did check the twitter messages ...

Anyway, my condolences. I know you and your family have been through a rough time. I pray for healing and comfort for you.
