 Reflections of My Heart

Looking Through My Life's Window Take Me Home

Looking Through My Life's Window
Take Me Home

Oh the gentle tugging
at this ole heart over the years.
Gets stronger with each passing day
to the point of bringing joyful tears

For so long I did not know
the source of my half full heart
The path laid before
leads back to my very start

The journey I'm about to embark
upon a road so familiar to me
Yes the very one I left upon
that will now set my heart free

With each passing mile
I know my memories will flow
They dance will upon my heart
as they did many years ago

The beauty of this land
your breath it will quickly steal
For me it is this place
that holds the me that's real

This land of my roots
for years has beckoned me back
Walking these streets
is what my life does lack

As a child these streets
I've walked many many miles
This town in which I lived
Now brings such Heart felt smiles

Rarely could you walk
and not greet a friend
Here where my heart yearns
until my time ends

On these country roads
among the memories I will roam
My precious Savior I pray
you guide me back home.

To Louisa County Virginia.

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
