Musings and Missings
As I sit here, almost 11:00pm on this Thursday of June 9th, I realize after reading some other blogs that I dearly miss my place of origin.
To my dismay, I find that I am going to miss so much back home in the next year since I have moved to South Dakota. My brother is going to be a senior in high school (side note: I feel old) and I will not get to be around to see most of it. My sister is going to be a junior in college (side note: still feeling old) and she has a wonderful guy who I approve of and think is quite funny. Then there are my parents whom I love dearly and know that I will miss no matter where I am at, at any given time. My friends, Mark and Katy and their newly married life, Paul and the movie/sports banter, Craig and Thomas graduating (side note: Now Paul, Mark and I feel old). Papa Bear, Ransomed Heart, Poker, Applebees, and IHOP at forsaken hours.
But despite all these things and many more that I could go on and on about, I know that God's plan is perfect in every way and I will trust that what is happening is the way things ought to be and for the best.
Above all my longing to be in HIS service grows each day and I want so badly to be on the path that leads to full time.
Praise Him for His awesome power and thank God for the changes in our lives that only seem to make us stronger and prepare us for what lies ahead.
At this point in time in my melancholy state (how about that big word usage Paul??!!) I will reflect upon the words of Jars of Clay:
Rescue me from hanging on this line
I want to give up on giving you the chance to blow my mind
Let the eleventh hour quickly pass my by
I'll find you when I think I'm out of time
May God be with you all back home and those who may read. Blessings!
