Home Sweet Home

As I type this, I sit in familiar surroundings, the sights and smells of home enveloping me. It is good to be home.

Dad picked me up yesterday, and we drove home around 1 p.m. after waiting for a strong deluge to pass so that we could pack the car without everything getting soaked. The part the service station got for the car yesterday was again the wrong one, so it was nice that Dad was on his way to take me home. We got a call this morning that they had fixed the car, so perhaps if we had waited it out for one more day... But God has allowed all this to happen, and I'm glad to be home. It will just mean planning a trip to Jackson fairly soon to pick up the car!

We drove straight to the Hart's house and enjoyed a delicious meal and great fellowship. We got home somewhat late, and I slept long and well last night, in the comfort of my own bed, soothed into a deep sleep by the torrential rain. I've been rather lazy today, unpacking a bit, talking with family, and going to a family of friends' house and watching Come What May (excellent movie, by the way!). Currently I am cooking up a storm, enjoying the scent of an Old Fashioned Spice Cake in the oven.

There is a lot still to sort through about what exactly I will be doing this summer and in the year ahead. It will be a lot of work, and things will not be perfect. The enormity of it all is beginning to hit me, but I know that God will be faithful in leading me as He has in the past. There will be a lot of planning and preparation, but God will work things out one day at a time as I seek to follow Him.

Well, so glad to know you are home safe and sound....and enjoying every minute of it!

Yes, you have a lot to sort through about the coming year, but the Lord will reveal His will to you. He always has.

I have been wanting to see Come What May. But I don't own it and Netflix doesn't have it...

I am so glad you're home. I makes me appreciate my home more, reading about your struggle to get home.

I really like Come What May. I indirectly know the stars, which makes it all the more fun.
