Egypt Sounds Good Today





So I find myself wanting to go back to Egypt. But I don't feel like an Israelite. I feel like a woman who had roots and never recognized it til now. I feel like a woman who had 2 hard months a year, not 5. I feel like a woman who wants to smell her roses and put her hands in the dirt...in April. I feel like a woman who had friends who called and spent time together. I feel like a woman who goes to Home Depot with her man to get fertilizer in January and pool supplies in March. I feel like a woman who could swing on her amazing swing that her sweet man gave her.. for months. I feel like a woman who bought flip flips and wore them. I feel like a woman who went to Trader Joe's. I feel like a woman who went to jazz concerts and listened to smooth jazz on the radio. I feel like a woman who could drive 3 hours to see her sister and 8 to see T's family.
We left why?

OK, I admit hormones are crazy right now (when are they not at this point?), but you just made me cry... :(

Oh my heart aches for you right now. I just want to tell you to come back, but that may not be what God has for you. But if it is....COME BACK!!! No judgement here on this end. You all listened to the Lord and this is where He led you...but maybe not for forever...only you know. Just know that we miss you and haven't forgotten you even though we are far away. I love you! (saying that as I shed a few tears). Love, Sis

I'm so sorry that you are homesick, Tina. I know that feeling very well. I'm sad that you are under that cloud right now.

May the Lord woo your heart during this season of loneliness. May He give you a romantic season of loving digging in His word and hearing His voice with clarity. And may He provide someone with "skin and bones" to encourage you there in Colorado too. I only wish I lived closer.

Love, Laura
