Saudade

January 25, 2017

Do you ever feel that longing for something that can’t be described? Its a longing that can’t be satisfied by anything here on earth. Its a longing for the hope of heaven which is to come, our heavenly home where we will be with Jesus. Sometimes we can just get a glimpse maybe in a song or in a sunrise or in Scripture that stirs that longing. Treasure those stirrings. Store up those glimpses. Be present now but always with that hope for the future. It brings joy.

“Like ghosts become flesh for the first time

we came to the land of the living

tasted the bread

sipped the wine

spoke the language of belonging.

In a tent on a hill walled by green

we gathered for  one more meal

I watched twilight

dance with candlelight

and breathed a hint of truly alive.

Can you be sick for a home you’ve never seen?

Sometimes the curtain flutters,

and I catch a glimpse

of a fawn in the shadow

that bids me to follow.

I can’t. Not yet.

But I am coming home.”   Jen Rose Yokel
