My wife and I lived our whole lives in Arkansas until 2001. Then we moved to the Kansas City area in (a job change). That was the reason for the ‘From a Far Country’ title. Our children and grandchildren were in Arkansas. After ten years in KC I retired and we sold our house and bought one in Sherwood, Arkansas. I’m working part time for the company I worked for before we moved away.
So maybe the ‘From a Far Country’ title is not so much of a fit anymore. But I think I’ll stick with it. I’m still not home. Not yet. The Bible says we are all strangers and pilgrims here. Our real home is with God and some day we’ll be there. We’ll be home.
