That is where we are now. Almost unpacked and settled in.
Often the coming home is much sweeter than the being away - hard to believe and even harder to say.
What not so long ago was the rut and routine has gracefully become the warm and cozy. Within its embrace we are welcomed back to the reality of life.
And, we are glad to be back.
I think that we all need those get away moments. Sabbath breaks in the midst of being. Occasions to release, replenish and return.
Release that which we should never had gripped so tightly.
Replenish what is left empty and wanting.
Return not so much to what was but what should have always been.
