I've been in Wisconsin for about 5 weeks now. I have 3 more weeks to go and I can't wait to get home. I've noticed this past month how much I long for familiarity. Almost everyday, I find myself pouring over pictures of Rick and my family.. sometimes for an hour at a time. I almost thrive off of phone calls from people back at home. Without those little perks in my day, life would be so much harder. Thank God for technology!
However, this discovery of myself leaves me to ask 2 questions:
1. What would life be like if I didn't have that "vital connection" with Christ everywhere I go? Life is difficult enough not seeing my loved one's everyday, but without Christ in my life - I can't begin to imagine.
2. What did God really mean in the garden when he said, "It is not good for the man to be alone." I understand Adam needed a helper and someone to complete him, but what drives us to desire to know people, have friends, feel a place of belonging? It's in all of us. Maybe that's one of the reasons Paul made it such a point make the church 1 unit. He knew we need each other.
