“I wanna get off and go home again.”

‘Creatures are not born with desires unless satisfaction for those desires exists. A baby feels hunger: well, there is such a thing as food. A duckling wants to swim: well, there is such a thing as water. If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world. I must never mistake my earthly blessings for the something else of which they are only a kind of copy, or echo, or mirage. I must keep alive in myself the desire for my true country, which I shall not find until after death.”
-CS Lewis, “Mere Christianity”

“More longing for home.”
-More Holiness Give Me (Hymn #131)
“Yet ofttimes a secret something
Whispered, “You’re a stranger here,”
And I felt that I had wandered
From a more exalted sphere.”
-O My Father (Hymn # 292)

1) Do you ever f
eel lonely for home (real home, I mean)?

2) Do you miss it?
