Bottled tidbits 4

Jac, I rejoice in that the Lord has given you another year. Praise be to Him for His goodness, mercy and truth. Great is His faithfulness indeed.


My high school buddy and good friend Vanessa wrote this very moving piece about homesickness.

She said, "I visited a friend's house some two weeks ago and just sitting in their living room feels weird...sort of foreign. And then I saw her Mom and Dad and brothers and their kitchen and dining table and I couldn't help but feel a little envious. She goes home to her family in a real house everyday after grueling hours at school! She eats warm, homecooked meals at least twice daily and she has parents who can give her a real hug whenever schoolwork starts to get too frustrating!"
