Going Home
By Larry Chadwick
Hope you can endure the collection of poems I found that I wrote in 1993! Here is one.


For many years Iíve traveled around,
But now Iím finally homeward bound.
The landmarks are looking familiar to me,
Old memories are stirring from what I see.

I forgot how going home would make me feel,
Sitting down to the table and a home cooked meal.
Welcomed home by the hugs only my mom could give,
I just thought I knew what it meant to really live.

Then I pondered my relationship to the Lord,
How long has it been since it was Him I adored?
As Iíve struggled through life with a heavy load,
I made a wrong turn and left the homeward road.

I forgot how going home to Jesus would make me feel,
Sitting down to the table and that Last Supper meal.
Welcomed home by hugs only nail pierced hands can give,
Learning what it really means for eternity with Him to live.


October 8, 1993

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Beautiful Larry, absolutely inspiring.  I loved this.

If I have touched one heart through my words, then I have acheived my dream...

(big hugggsssss) Oh Larry, I too understand this, I feel sometimes we tend to take the simple gifts our families give us for granted then to us we realize how it feels like the Last Supper and you want to say apologies a thousand times over and making it up by being there in the harvest of your loved ones so very much! (sigh) God Bless You, sweet friend, this is excellent, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Larry, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

Donna,
Thank you. I was reflecting on going to where my earliest memories were and then realized there was another application! I'm glad you enjoyed.

Noah,
I hadn't thought of that. But it is an interesting point! And thank you for reading and enjoying.

Marge,
You are tooooooooooo sweet! And thank you. MORE!

I've literally just spent hours pouring over most of your writings, and am in awe of the length and breath of your wisdom and compassion, as well as a bit overwhelmed by the sheer volume of your work.

I will definitely be back time and time again to this veritable treasure trove to reference whatever nugget I can find, to get me through whatever life throws at me.

Right now I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for offering this goldmine to anyone who should chance upon it.

God bless you.

To thy own self be true

June Marie,
Please know how dumb founded I am! You are amazingly kind and generous. But mostly I'm humbled.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

A delightful poem.  I've never really thought of it in this way...going home to Jesus' dinner table, but I love it.

Rae,
Thank you. It is a rather comforting thought.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
