Home is wherever I'm with you

I have NO idea how to start this blog. I am currently in Clemson, South Carolina, sitting on a couch in the Ridge, APT 107 to be exact. Looking at Betsy, and Susannah watching some show on television, while I have my headphones in listening to "Home" by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. This song brings a lot of sweet little memories to my thoughts. Specifically being in the Ceramics Studio at PC. Duncan Cecil introduced me to this one, and I absolutely adore the lyrics, and playfulness of the song. I just picture myself dancing around, rinsing the slip out of my brushes, singing, and laughing while enjoying the company of other art majors.
So this first made me a little sad, right? I mean, I am no longer a Blue hose. Here I am, a "Tiger," and currently that doesn't carry as much weight to me as it probably does to most of the students here. Please do not take this the wrong way, and assume that I am unhappy here. Because I am VERY happy. It did, although, make me think, and wonder why else I like the song. I love the phrase, " Home is wherever I'm with you." I have just realized that, wherever I am in life, I will always, in some way be, "Home." As long as I am pursuing Jesus, and TRUSTING where he is taking me, I feel that I can't get to far from Home.
