|Baby Bo and his Daddy|
In that time, my computer would not work. I have not been able to upload my pictures from Italy except the ones I took on my phone. I will be getting that done in the next week or so.
I have noticed that leaving my home is hard. I have always been under the impression that I could move away, no problem. I haven't ever moved away but I just thought that it would be easy...a new adventure. WRONG!!!! It's funny that at 43, I am still learning things about myself. Kimi likes to be in her familiar surroundings, around her family, church and friends. She is not good at leaving the country. She gets homesick by day two!! However, sometimes, we must step outside of our comfort zone. Guess what, it's uncomfortable. It opens us up to new and exciting things and it gets the blood flowing because it is a little scary and uncertain.
My husband was full of patience with me and understood my homesickness. It didn't engulf me and keep me from enjoying my time in Italy. But, I can see how it can paralyze some. I am thankful for God's presence in my life. That no matter where on this beautiful earth, I am, He is with me.
Today, I hope you know that no matter what is happening in your life, GOD is there. No, He doesn't always rescue us from life, but He is always our strength and help. He is always there. Life has many seasons. Some are easy and others are hard, but the one constant thing we can depend on is the presence of God. You can have refreshing and renewal and rest even in the midst of the battle. That is His gift to us. Some may not understand, that's okay. Some may ridicule and make fun, that's okay. It will make some angry and they will lash out, that's okay. When we are aware of the very presence of God- we are refreshed, home, rested and uplifted.
