Oh, I am so homesick!
I am tired of being in jail.
Today is my best friend’s birthday – Happy Birthday Mo…I wish I was there to celebrate with you!
I found out that my really good friend Krissy is having a baby! Oh, how I wish I could be there to help her with that too! And Shauna has a birthday coming (I SURE DO, PEOPLE!). My dad’s birthday just passed. My cousin got married. My 7 year old niece is wearing my shoes to church! 🙂
And I am missing it all! Life doesn’t stop for anyone else just because it stopped for me!
But this “break” from life has been a blessing – that’s for sure. And although it could be a lengthy break…I know this is what I need.
I got a letter from my best friend from Jr. High. He reminded me about when we led a Bible study at school in the mornings. And about when we went to “See you at the Pole.” He told me that instead of seeing this time as punishment, I should see myself as a missionary.
Thank you, God, for this statement!
When I look at it this way – I don’t get afraid of how much time I am looking at. I don’t worry about a court date. And I am okay with missing birthdays and stuff because I know that bringing people to Jesus is causing a way huge celebration!
