but i’m beginning to think this shade doesn’t really suit me.
michael’s headed to the states. again. and i’m not. again. this time he’s headed to colorado. where the temps look like they are gonna range from the high 40s to the low 80s. and while we’ll be having some low 80’s here, that will be our overnight lows. and during the day we’re managing to get into the mid 90s. again. and – while i’m plenty jealous about the cool nights and not too hot days he’ll be enjoying – it’s really the opportunity to be there that i’m missing.
it strikes when you least expect it.
or maybe if i were more observant i’d have known this was coming. being left behind this summer was probably the beginning. add to that the medical scares we’ve recently had. and then this weekend we were blessed to experience worship with worshiplanet – mark and carrie tedder just happen to make their home in colorado springs. so i guess it’s not really all that surprising that i’m feeling like a little bit of home would be nice right now.
and that’s got me thinking what/where is home to me? i can’t really pinpoint it as a location. texas? colorado? thailand? they’re all home to me now – but also? they’re not. i’ve heard that’s gonna be a life long struggle for us – figuring out just where we belong. and while that makes me a lot uncomfortable, in an odd way i also find it comforting. and in an effort to try to solve this conundrum i went searching for some lyrics (cuz that’s where the answers are, right?) – they go something like “home where the la la la la home where the la la la la home la la la la la la patiently for me” – but instead of finding them i came across this song. and it hits the mark.
