Don't get me wrong: I love Budapest ... it's a beautiful city and we have some beautiful friends here.
I'm probably more comfortable than most people being away from home since I've lived in more than 40 homes in the U.S. and Europe. But I still get homesick.
And sometimes I get homesick for heaven too. I'm longing for a home where there's no sin, suffering, and confusion, a home with my true family and my Perfect Father.
Do you ever feel heavenly homesickness?
If so, 1 Peter 2:11-12 tells us what to do: "As aliens and strangers in the world...abstain from sinful desires ... Live such good lives among the pagans that ... they may see your good deeds and glorify God."
As we travel through this earth, Let's live lives that make others homesick too.
|When we return to the States a week from today, we'll leave behind many fond memories of this 2013 Budapest trip.|
