Musical Monday: If Heaven Weren’t So Far Away


My little brother loved country music. The station in his truck is still set to his favorite country station.
I don’t have the heart to change it.
I may never.
This song came on the radio today and I just lost it.
If only heaven weren’t so far away.
I would take a day trip all by myself.
I’d want him to introduce me to Jesus personally.
And we’d spend the entire day with my baby bro telling me exactly how to live the rest
of my life on earth with out him.
I’d let Nannie lecture me one more time on how to be a good person.
And to always remember to trust my gut instinct about all else.
Papa would hug me and say he’d leave a pot of coffee on for me.
And I would cry all the way home.
At least it would be seeing them all in person.
And not only in my dreams.
