So, you may have noticed that each of my posts on home seem to have a theme about them. That’s because, in my overall theme of Finding Home, I am going along with Kate Motaung over at Heading Home. The idea is a 5 Minute daily challenge as part of this 31 day event, so I’m trying to make it work.
But, when I think about home, I realize it’s the impatience I get to practice at home.
I get to pour my heart out to my Abba, my family, my dog, my journal – about the things my heart yearns for.
I get to cry, panic, worry…I get to just be real for a moment.
I’ve learned that this doesn’t take away from my waiting. It doesn’t make my strong moments lose strength. It doesn’t affect the beauty of what will be.
It’s just a place I get to be real in my frustrations for a minute.
Because, out in the world, I use every ounce of patience in me: in my job, in my day to day errands, in waiting for a job, for “him”, for a home…(Not so much in the car – I’m working on that).
At home, there are moments, I get to practice impatience.
And, I’ll be honest – I am really glad for those moments.
