I had a day to myself; I have one more day before I am rejoined with my college roommate who is serving as a missionary in Bangkok. How would you spend your first day back home?
I could have gone to the night market, ventured out to the nearby fruit stand to enjoy my favorite fruit, unpacked my suitcase to find my shorts (it is HOT-I’m melting), or go out to get some food. Instead I slept, processed, worshiped and read some of the books Julia left that helped her first few months being here. I slept for 4 hours, woke at 7am, I am still tired, laid down and worshiped myself to sleep. Then woke again to read a book, the letter Julia left me and unpacked the gifts for Julia. Fell asleep again I woke to worship and praise God and just remained in Him-his promises, love and truth.
It was as if I had the perfect vacation-without me ever stepping out of my room. I am in total isolation with God and can choose do whatever I wish. I used this time to be rejuvenated and renewed. So good.
