I never thought

I would ever come to care for this country......for starters it just wasn't home, and not a week went by that I wouldn't remind God of this. Sure the sunflowers grow here, and tomatoes, but it's hot and dry, and there aren't any trees to speak of, and certainly no mountains. What they might call a mountain wasn't even a respectable hill back home. And there was no ocean. And, and, and....on and on, for seven years.
til one day I realized I wouldn't go back "home", even if I could...that this place, with it's wide open horizons and sunflowers had become home, and I was grateful for my little piece of it.
Of course, knowing that God does have a sense of humor, I may be moving again soon....
