Even though I have spent most of my life outside the good ole US of A, I am definitely an American. Right now I am experiencing a bit of homesickness. The stupid part of this is that I'm not homesick for friends and family, because thanks to modern technology, I can communicate with whomever I please. I am homesick for the malls and restaurants and fun things. Foolishness, I know. I wish we could go to the old Pizza Mill and Sub Factory we used to go to when I was a child. I'd like to spend some time in Solvang, CA or Eureka Springs, AR, browsing through the shops. I would like to be eating an Awesome Blossom at Chili's. Isn't that ridiculous in the light of Eternity? One of the ways we lose our effectiveness as servants of God is our discontented attitudes. I am abundantly blessed all the time. Why can't I see this?
