So I cried on the way back from Muhlenberg today. I was feeling so many things. I missed my friends sooo much. I didn’t even realize how much until I saw them again. Being back on campus was a lot to handle. It was a very bizarre experience. I was back in the place I called home for a year, but It wasn’t home any more. I was back with my DCF (Disciplemakers Christian Fellowship) family and it felt like nothing had changed…but so much has changed. It was hard to see everyone and know that things didn’t stop happening just because I wasn’t there….I’ve missed so much. It made me sad to know that I am not part of what goes on at Muhlenberg anymore.
But…it made me realize how blessed I am. I have friendships rooted in Christ. Our love for the Lord transcends the distance between us. Even though I am not around anymore, it was like nothing had changed. We got back to our room after DCF and talked about what we learned in scripture that night until three in the morning. It was just like last semester. I missed that.
So as I sit here alone on this lovely Saturday night knowing my friends are all at a DCF fellowship night, I’m kinda bummed out, but I know that I am here because the Lord wants to be here and I can’t wait to see what He has in store for me next semester at Catholic University.
