24 west

i came back to TN last night and was having a lot of "oh woe is me" moments. i'm only here for a few days, but it was hard to leave home when i had family and friends so close by. and even though i was sleeping on the couch while i was home (my room is being painted), it was much better than sleeping alone in a condo. so i get to clarksville, all lonely and mopey and mad.

but today i realized something. every place i go cannot be like home. (this is a very simple thing that most of you probably know, so bear with me.) but really, i expect to have my bff's right around the corner, my family just next door, and all the things i love and find comfortable around me all the time. that is just dumb. it is really pretty silly of me to compare clarksville to marietta. God doesn't normally bring you from one place to another place just like it. how are you supposed to grow like that? and so maybe i live alone (just for now) and only have like two friends, but when I really step back and look at my life in TN, i have everything i need. the Lord truly provides.
