Hitting the Wall
Well, I hadn't really dealt with any sort of homesickness all summer up until about now. I had a couple of rough days last week, and on top of that, my roommate is leaving tomorrow, and these last few weeks of the summer seem to be dragging by with the absence of Fuge. Don't get me wrong, it's been a great summer. I've learned a lot and grown a lot, but I just feel like I'm ready to move back home and see all of my friends in Tifton and get back into a consistent routine. I was also looking at pictures from this year's WBA Youth camp and it made me sad that I wasn't there. On top of that, I really miss a bunch of my friends that I worked at Frontier with. I know that I'm here to serve and to be a light, and I am more than willing to do my job and to be a witness to the guests that come through this campus, but I'm also really looking forward to getting back and seeing everyone. Phone calls and text messages just aren't the same as sitting by a person and holding their hand or embracing them in a hug. So, while I am looking forward to serving these next three and a half weeks, I'm also praying that they pass quickly. Please pray that I have the strength I need to make it through the remainder of my summer.
