When in Rome

Well, it's been three years, but last week we were blessed with another wonderful album from Nickel Creek. If you haven't heard them yet, check them out! That's all I have to say about that. Anyway, it's all great, but the first song is by far the best. The last line of the song goes, "Where can a dead man go?/A question with an answer only dead men know/But I'm gonna bet they never really feel at home if they spent a lifetime learning how to live in Rome." And they they break out into this incredible, furious jam complete with stomping. It's trully invigorationg. The words are what really get to me though. For Christians, it all the sudden makes sense not to live our lives for anything here. I would hate to get to heaven and not feel at home because I lived for this earth so much. Lately, God has really been showing me through different events that this is not home. We do not belong here. There have been days this summer where every part of my being longs for heaven and I don't want to lose that just because Brian's home now. And speaking of, the above picture is of me pinning his Lt. bars on his uniform after he was commissioned.
