The feeling swept in with the morning rain clouds, as I sat by the window drinking coffee. Restlessness.
There were no defining edges to it. I couldn’t quite grasp where the emotion came from. It was just there. And it consumed me.
I daydreamed about moving to another town. We’d lived here four years so it was time, right? There were plenty of good reasons to migrate further south.
Like my mom’s stroke last year. Being over five hundred miles away was not ideal, and my parents weren’t getting any younger.
And I won’t even dwell on the winters here. This southern girl learned how to use a snow shovel a few years ago and purchased a new set of all-season tires, but I’d prefer not to have to use either.
Yes, I change of location was exactly what we needed. Wasn’t it? I was sure my restless ache would stop when the scenery became white sand and Palmetto trees.
But as the sun set later that evening and I watched my boys soaking up the last daylight hours, I sensed God speak.
Look for the beauty. Right here. Right now.
