Psalm 122:1 & Acts 27:29

Psalm 122:1
"I was glad when they said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the LORD!'"
Acts 27:29
"And fearing that we might run aground somewhere on the rocks, they cast four anchors from the stern and prayed for day to come."

I was so blessed in prayer meeting tonight.  I am fully glad that I am here, right here where I need to be, for the summer, because I have the house of the Lord to go to every Sunday and Wednesday.
Every summer I was at camp and away from home, there would be a point when I felt a need, a pull to the house of the Lord which I couldn't respond to because I was busy all day.
I was doing the Lord's work and He was there right beside me the whole time, holding me up and whispering encouragement through a beautiful sky or the pure smile of a child or a verse on the wall of the Pots & Pans room, but I needed to go to His house sometimes.
Camp is a place that I truly love, but the Mission is a place that I truly love as well and I am glad that I can cast my anchors there when I fear running aground.

But you know who I miss?  My sister (you would get a link if there was something to link to) and this girl.
To you two:
I love you both.
We had Bible Study yesterday and something was missing.  That something was you two.
I was on campus yesterday running errands and wishing I could meet you two for lunch.
Tonight I cast anchors for both of you.  Everyone at the Mission cast anchors for you.
My heart is torn in between two places right now.  I think it's clear by now where those two places are.
I can't wait to see you, and I will soon.
