Sentimentality, Nostalgia, and Words I Wish to Speak

Hymns are playing in the background.
My mind is wandering.
Homesick feelings are welling up inside.
Memories are bubbling to the surface.
Words I want to share and feelings I want to express flitter through my mind...
How can I tell them to so many people?
Where do I begin?

I love you.
You have done so much for me.
I appreciate all you have done for me.
The care you have shown.
I am thankful for you.
I miss you.
My life would be different had you not touched it.

I am so sorry for the times I have hurt you...
For the times I have shrugged you off...
Spoken words of disrespect...
Not treated you the way you deserve to be treated...
Taken you for granted...
Been disobedient...
Thought rude thoughts...

I think with great fondness of the times we have shared.
The experiences life has brought.
The way our paths have crossed.
The church family God has placed in my life.
Always there...
Always changing...
Yet, still the ways.

I thank God for my family.
I love them so dearly!
I pray that one day we will all be together...
on earth...and then Heaven.
Laughing together!
Making memories!
I love them!

I thank God for my school family!
I feel so connected....
Despite having never talked to some people.
They are here.
We are all striving to one same thing.
Have one thing in common.

I thank God for placing me in the life He has.
Rough as it sometimes may be...
He will stay beside me.
He is my ROCK.
He is my FORTRESS.
In whom I WILL trust!
