I like Africa, I really do. This might seem strange to some who can't understand why I could like being away from my earthly home like this. Don't get me wrong I miss my family, friends, and my home. I miss some silly things about life in Tennessee. I miss fitted bed sheets, a kitchen trash can, my dogs, cooking in my kitchen, and reading the newspaper with my morning coffee. I have also found that there are some things that I don't miss. I don't miss my television humming in the background, my dogs barking, and cold weather. During this trip I have had a peace about being here. Reading this devotional helped me understand just where that peace comes from. Wherever I go, whatever I do Christ dwells in me. He is in my heart and in Him I am home.
Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God's love and keep you strong. Ephesians 3:17
