This is Home

I've got my memories
Inside of me
But I can't go back
Back to how it was
I believe you now
I've come too far
No I can't go back
Back to how it was
Created for a place
I've never known

This is home
Now I'm finally
Where I belong
Where I belong
Yeah, this is home
I've been searching
For a place of my own
Now I've found it
Maybe this is home
Yeah, this is home

Belief over misery
I've seen the enemy
And I won't go back

Back to how it was
And I got my heart
Set on
What happens next
I got my eyes wide
It's not over yet
We are miracles
And we're not alone

And now after all
My searching
After all my questions
I'm gonna call it home
I got a brand new mindset
I can finally see
The sunset
I'm gonna call it home

Now I know
Yeah, this is home

I've come too far
And I won't go back
Yeah, this is home

I really like this song. For the past year (almost), I've been struggling to make Georgia my home. I have been trying to find my niche, my place here in terms of friends, a church family, work, etc. I know this song is actually about redemption, but it can have a double meaning. To me, I sometimes get sad and wish I was home in New York. When I express that to Phil, he says, "you ARE home." Sometimes it is hard for me to accept that this is my home now, because I am a NYC girl to the core. However, I do feel that I have come so far (in life, and in my walk with God) and He is changing my mindset about living in Georgia.

New iMac and Photo Booth!

I got a new computer today after over 6 years. It is a beautiful 20 inch iMac, 2.4 giga hertz (whatever that means) and a gig of memory. So, its not the best or most expensive Mac out there, but it is a beauty nonetheless, and I love it. I had fun with Philip playing with photo booth, too. Hehe!
