i'm only hours away from being home from my work trip (and i get to see austin!). even if it's just for a day and then i'm back out in kentucky again for another two weeks, i'm very thankful for the chance to go home and rest. Lord knows i need it.
this verse has brought me a lot of comfort while being away, "And He said, 'My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.'" Exodus 33:14.
