Music Monday 3.0 – Carrie Underwood

I recently heard Carrie Underwood’s new single “Temporary Home” on the radio. I was struck by the premise of the song when you really listen to the lyrics. The idea that this world is a temporary holding space for us, and that greater things exist. The final verse of the song portrays an older man at the end of his life and the realization of this notion. I can’t help but think about a good family friend who recently passed away.

Over the summer, a dear friend of my Mother passed away after a fight with cancer. In a beautiful act of symbolism Jenny and her husband chose the butterfly to symbolize her journey and ultimate flight from this world to the heavens. This week my card is inspired by Carrie’s song, but also by Jenny, the wonderful woman that she was, and her life in this temporary home.
