Funny thing, when I leave for a trip I am always kind of excited, I love my women’s ministries job and actually never consider it a job. For one reason or another I will sometimes extend the trip for a day or two. This time my friend wanted to do some shopping. She loves to shop, I would rather have gone to Disney World–I never get tired of Micky Mouse.
I am always sorry when I extend a trip–I am just naturally drawn towards home. I love to be home. I hope you feel that tug towards home too. I don’t know maybe it’s my bed I miss or perhaps it’s my sewing machine but to be honest it’s my fella. I just miss him when I am away. It’s because I know him so well and he knows me. We just seem to fit each other pretty well. It hasn’t always been like this in the early days of marriage I would have extended my trip for weeks if given the chance.
You know where I am going with this–I’ve talked about it before–it’s the nudge toward home. We are given a natural restlessness just to make us long for our heavenly home. The more we get to know our Father the more we want to go home. The more we long for heaven, the more we want the rest and peace we find when we depend on Him.
I do have some news for you–if you are planning a trip to Orlando and want to go to Disney World or Epcot, go to the Disney website. Click on Give a Day–Get a day and follow the instructions. If you volunteer in one of their projects in your community they will give you a free ticket to DW or Epcot. Can’t beat that. I can tell you it would have been a whole lot cheaper for me to pay full price for DW than to go shopping.
