Songs & Stories: Welcome Home

This song means a lot to me because the words express how I felt the first few days of my dad’s passing. My sisters were on the way back and I imagine how lonely and sad the flight back home was. My sister told me she cried when she listened to this song. I thought she was the person who introduced this song to me but found out that it was my eldest sister who introduced this song to us. I think they were trying to find Christian music for the wake service because nobody knew if there was going to be music at the wake service. After all, it was the first wake service in our family, of our family member.

When I received the phone call from my mom telling me that my dad was not responsive anymore, I rushed home but the traffic was bad. I told myself that I had to get home safe. I sensed the Lord reassuring me when I was in the car. In my heart, I heard “Don’t worry. He is with me now.” Not long after that, the hospice nurse called me and confirmed that my dad had passed.

Sometimes I still find it difficult to believe that he is gone but I remind myself that we will meet again. Someday.
