Today's Reading: 1 Peter 1-5
Travel might be great but living out of a suitcase is hard for me. I seem to never feel settled. Despite the wonderful new sights and adventures, I always love coming home after being a temporary resident elsewhere.
Peter starts his letter with this reality; we are temporary residents in this world. Though there are some amazing sights and sounds and people, there is always a feeling that we are not at home, we miss the comfort of something familiar we can't name.
Like Dorothy said to Toto, "I don't think we're in Kansas anymore." We know there is something very unfamiliar in this Oz-ian existance on earth.
There truly is no place like home.
