If you know me well, you know how much of a homebody I am. I fantasize about living in the woods as a hermit. A weekend away in the woods is a much appreciated holiday every year or so, but its nothing I could ever do long term. For one reason, I believe that God created us all to live in community. He, himself, has been in community since before time began. It’s that supernatural thing that we will never fully understand in the Trinity. One God, three persons existed from the beginning. We were made in that image and we are not meant to do this life alone. So, even though I am an introvert and thrive in my alone time, I grow and benefit even more in my relationships with others.
The other reason that I could not live alone in the woods is because part of my love for HOME is my love for Family. They are home to me. Where ever I am in the world, with family, I am home. God has blessed me with a lot of family.
This is my family.
I just got home from visiting with this family. It’s been over 9 years since the siblings hung out like we did last weekend. My heart is full…
This is NOT my family. I don’t claim either one of them.
THIS is my family, my boys.
This is my home, my safety, my love.
I am blessed. SO blessed.
