I am so thankful to be Home! After well over 600 miles of driving just today.
On the road before dawn. Pulling into our driveway well after dark. Unloading and unpacking more boxes than I dared to count. More awaits us tomorrow.
For now, I guess it’s bedtime. I’ve been sitting in front of a blank computer screen for twenty minutes. After sitting in our truck for twelve hours.
I bolted out of bed this morning. Knowing we wanted to get an early start on the long drive Home. Thinking I would have my “quiet time” with You on the road.
I did, up to a point. Worship music with my headphones on. And prayer — lots of prayer. But it wasn’t the same… was it, Lord? Not the cozy, private communion we are used to having Together.
Maybe that’s why I have no inspiration tonight. No creativity tonight. Just weariness, in need of rest.
Thanks for understanding, Lord. Thanks for being closer than my next breath all day long. Thanks for holding me close as I crawl into bed tonight. Thanks for watching over me as I sleep.
And thanks for eagerly welcoming me into Your Presence tomorrow morning, as I know You will. As You always do.
“The Lord is my Strength and my Shield; my heart trusts in Him, and He helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise Him.” (Psalm 28:7)
Counting the hours,
