    This world is not my home, I'm just a passing thro'. My treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue. The angels beckon me from heaven's open door And I can't feel at home in this world anymore. O Lord, you know I have no friend like you If heaven's not my home, then Lord what will I do? The angels beckon me from heaven's open door And I can't feel at home in this world anymore. (This World is not my Home)

    "Well, I wouldn't take nothin' for my journey now, I'm gonna make it to Heaven somehow, Though the Devil tempts me and tries to turn me around. He's offered everything that's got a name, All the wealth I want and worldly fame, But if I could still I wouldn't take nothin' for my journey now."

    Lithuania's Haunting Hill of Crosses ~ Outside the city of Šiauliai, Lithuania, there's an area covered with an estimated 55,000 crosses.

The crosses have been bulldozed several times, but spring back starting immediately afterward.

    “In some types of Christianity, yew is planted around graveyards not only to remind visitors of eternal life but to keep the dead from wandering from their graves before Judgment Day. Some Norse Pagans believed that precisely because yew stood between two worlds, it could trap unwary souls inside itself. Burning yew as an incense is still a traditional means for raising the dead and thus in a sense, entrapping them.”
