9/7/2021 JOURNEY TO HOME (published 9/8/2021)


Today is Wednesday, 9/7/2021. The day was mundane for most folks, including Mrs. Appalachian Irishman and me.

At a moment, in a blink of an eye, the mundane can change. I write this brief article today, to honor a good Christian lady, who went Home yesterday.

9/7/2021 Tuesday

I was in my mundane world of working for a living at home. (I did so today. I'll drive to and from the “Hadean Realm” office the next two days, to do the same work – unless something changes.)

I saw a text on my semi-intelligent cell phone. It was a sad text. My friend told me that her mother had passed, from the temporal to the everlasting, that day.

I remember this good Christian lady and her good family, from about 1981 to 1984. The fond memories are in the archives of my concussion-recovered mind. I will not share them here. Those who read and know will remember.

My sister in Christ was 81 years old when she went Home. She had endured temporal health trouble for a while. She is released from those troubles now! She is Home!

She has joined many others, who had already gone Home! I see, by my eyes of faith, the everlasting reunion that she is having now! It must be wonderful!

I wish that the Good Lord would now, while I write this article, call everyone “out of the pool!” I paused. Nope, the Good Lord didn't do so yet. Many others and I will keep waiting, in faith. Our faith rests on valid proof. It is not “blind faith.” I know. I can prove it.

I wish that I had been able, or had taken the time, to see my sister in Christ, before she went Home. She had been living not too far from us. I'll blame my failure on the mundane realities of this temporal realm, which include my “bionic” life.


I had to get this article off my mind and into print! Yesterday, I had called my friend and sister in Christ. I know the details about her mother, also my sister in Christ, who went Home yesterday. We had a good conversation. Our temporal sorrow was overcome by everlasting joy!

I have “poly-tics” and Georgia college football articles in my working documents. I will get around to publishing them eventually. Those articles are temporally “the good, bad, and ugly,” in the context of the realities of this speck of dust and temporal life.

Are you ready, dear reader, to join my sister in Christ, and so many others, at Home? I hope so. If you are not, and if you would like me to help you, please e-mail me! My e-mail address is in my profile.
