Very Away and Very Alone

Evang3300

I used to think that the more I got on planes and went places the easier it would get. Wrong! It always got tougher to be away from home.

I remember one major trip I took to South Africa. I knew I'd be gone for two and a half weeks, and as the family took me to the airport, we said a quick goodbye. We figure quick goodbyes are the easiest. And I remember as I walked through the door and left them behind and I got out of their sight, I was choking back tears. And I said, "Boy, I'm not like this very often." But honestly it hurt to leave them.

Now, I was really busy in South Africa. I was very blessed while I was there, but I was very lonely away from them. Frankly, it's really hard to be away from someone you love, right? But there is a kind of away that I have never experienced, and I never will. You might, but you don't have to.
