The Things I’m Missing

October 11, 2012 | By | No Comments

   HEY GUYS!!! There’s something on my heart right now that I would really like to share with you all. There comes a time when our independence becomes almost…unappealing.  It’s a time when your love for your family and the love for your home really comes out and you can’t help but long for them.  Its a time when our pride gets pushed aside and all we want is to be at home again where there were no problems and no worries.  That time has hit me sooner than I had thought, and I miss my family.
       College is full of stress and full of business. Sometimes I fell like I’m ALWAYS on the go and have no time to myself to just relax.  This really gives me an appreciation for the life I had back home that I took for granted.  Some things I had then, that are now an entire state away, really pull on my heart strings and now I really miss them.   The biggest thing I miss right now is by far my three little sisters.
I don’t know what your relationship is like with your siblings, if you have any, but I love my sisters more than anything in the world.  My sisters names are Abigail, Izabel, and Porsche (10 years old, 8 years old, and 4 years old). Being without them has really shown me a lot of things I have taken for granted and really underestimated the amount of my life that they took up.  We’ve always been really close but now that I’m so far away from them, I can really see how much they really meant to me. And now that they’re getting older, getting more social and having more peers in their lives it scares me knowing that their friends are impacting them more than I am.  I want to show them Christ and His love but I’m afraid they won’t see that in their lives now that I’m not there. And it isn’t just my sisters that I miss but there’s a lot of things about my home that really suck to be without.
       I just want you guys to know that sometimes we lose God’s gifts and forget God’s in the process of following God’s plan.  And now that I’m in college, separated from my family, I can see the times God blessed me and I didn’t take notice, or I was given a gift from God I wasn’t aware of.  I just pray that we, as a school, really take in the value of our families, and of God’s love, and really try not to forget the things that are important instead of getting lost in the future that isn’t even here yet. We have priorities right here and now that we cannot look past that we need to give to God and ask Him to work on, and that He works on those things through us, as Christians.  That thing is my family and that’s what’s on my heart right now.
Abigail, Age 10                                        Izabel, Age 8                                          Porsche, Age 4
