  • God allows wandering, but always knows how to get us back home

    For Christmas my husband bought me a GPS device for my car.

    I am notorious for my directional dyslexia, which I blame on my dad. When I was a kid he told me to get lost and, ever the obedient child, I’ve been doing so ever since.

    I don’t understand north. I know the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, but I couldn’t point it out to you. Orlando and Tampa are both south of where I live, but they feel northish to me.
