"This is Home"

(by Switchfoot)





"I've got my memories
Always inside of me
But I can't go back
Back to how it was

I believe you now
I've come too far
No, I can't go back
Back to how it was

Created for a place
I've never known

Chorus:
This is home
Now I'm finally
Where I belong
Where I belong
Yeah, this is home
I've been searching
For a place of my own
Now I've found it
Maybe this is home
Yeah, this is home

Belief over misery
I've seen the enemy
And I won't go back
Back to how it was

And I've got my heart set
On what happens next
I got my eyes wide
It's not over yet
We are miracles
And we're not alone

Chorus

And now
After all my searching
After all my questions
I'm gonna call it home
I got a brand new mindset
I can finally see the sunset
I'm gonna call it home

Chorus

Now I know
Yeah, this is home

I've come too far
And I won't go back
Yeah, this is home"

This is a super great song, so you should totally listen to it! {ahem, Amy B, I know you skip over the songs, but you should definitely listen to this one!!} Not all of the words fit my situation (because this song was written for Narnia, which doesn't exist), but a whole lot of them are totally applicable to me right now.

Today is MOVING DAY!! I've been waiting for this day for a long time! [Yes, I realize that once we found our house, it only took 27 days to close, but I think I've been waiting about 4 years, 9 months & 27 days for a place of my own again!!] I've been packing, moving vanloads of stuff, and painting all week, and I'm completely exhausted but oh so happy! I'll try to keep you posted on things as we settle in!

Pepper tried to help me paint Elizabeth's room!
{I was going to put the other Amy's picture here instead, but I know how she'd feel about that!}

OK, so do the reds in Cody's poster & wall match?
