It’s the last Saturday in October and y’all? I’m tired. These weeks of traveling have been good, but I am longing for home. Not just coming home for a few days and turning around again, but weeks stretched out at home, to make soup and read books and rake leaves into piles in the yard.
I’m thankful for my job, for John being home full time for now, for what this one short season of traveling represents for us. But today when I hopped on Pinterest and had to leave because all the home-y-ness of everything had me tearing up, well. I realized I’m a little homesick.
May we know the comfort of home even when we are away. May we carry on when weary, tired, scared, or alone. May we remember our great hope is not the comfort of home, but the presence of Jesus.
Enjoy your weekend, friends.
