So…as I was finally driving home, I figured out that of the last 30 days, I’ve been away for 25 of them. It’s been a long, busy month. I actually have a free weekend coming up. Even so, I am extremely blessed to get to do some of the things I do.
After saying goodbye to my kids Friday, I drove to my military weekend. I had the chance to interact with close to 100 people one on one as well as preach to somewhere about 30 faithful Soldiers. An overall blessing of a weekend even though I came home really tired.
Being home is a feeling like no other. When I got back from Afghanistan, I was never so grateful to drive down my road. Returning to that same road after travels is gratifying. I know not everyone travels. If you don’t, you never get to miss home.
I would encourage you to travel a little, if for no other reason than to be able to drive home and enjoy it. There’s no feeling in the world like it.
