Music Week- Carrie Underwood

I have been racking my brain on how to make my personality shine in this blog. I am going to post everyday this week about a song that I love and why. I have an eclectic music taste. You can't put this girl in a box.

My first song is a Carrie Underwood song called Temporary Home. As I live my life and see people going through ups and downs and suffering and joy, I need a reminder about the perspective of these things. This life is temporary and we have a "forever life" after this one. I think this is most comforting to those of us who have not loved this temporary life at some point. To know there is promise of a new life- one where our tears can be wiped away and we can eternal joy- with our first love and Savior. That is worth more than all the suffering this world could muster up for us. He is our great reward.

Here are the lyrics.

Little boy, 6 years old
A little too used to bein' alone
Another new mom and dad,another school
Another house that'll never be home
When people ask him how he likes this place
He looks up and says with a smile upon his face
This is my temporary home
It's not where I belong
Windows and rooms that I'm passin' through
This is just a stop, on the way to where I'm going
I'm not afraid because I know this is my
Temporary Home.
Young mom on her own
She needs a little help got nowhere to go
She's lookin' for a job, lookin' for a way out
Because a half-way house will never be a home
At night she whispers to her baby girl
Someday we'll find a place here in this world
This is our temporary home
It's not where we belong
Windows and rooms that we're passin' through
This is just a stop, on the way to where we're going
I'm not afraid because I know this is our
Temporary Home.

Old man, hospital bed
The room is filled with people he loves
And he whispers don't cry for me
I'll see you all someday
He looks up and says "I can see God's face."



This is my temporary Home
It's not where I belong
Windows and rooms that I'm passin' through
This was just a stop,on the way To where I'm going
I'm not afraid because I know this was
My temporary home.



This is our temporary home



This album by the way is awesome. This girl can sing! If you don't already have it, it wouldn't be a waste of money to buy it. :)
