MYSELF: Yes. Yes, it has. The trip of a lifetime, actually. I've seen things on this trip I have always prayed to experience, but didn't know if it would happen.
ME: Yes, I agree. So why are you a bit lonely?
MYSELF: Lonely? Me? I'm not lonely!
ME: Yes, you are. Seems to me you might be homesick?
MYSELF: Who me? I'm having an incredible time! How in the world could I be homesick? Besides that, I'm told that many people are following this blog, so I know I have people with me in spirit.
ME: Well, that may be true. But nobody is commenting on this blog so you have no way of knowing whether they are with you in spirit or not.
MYSELF: Well, thanks for throwing that in. Maybe they will take the hint....????
ME: Seems to me you may be missing your family.
MYSELF: Well....I think they are probably doing quite well without me. They sound like they are doing quite well without me...
ME: Well, I don't think that has anything to do with you missing them.
MYSELF: No, it probably doesn't. Does it say anywhere in the Word where Paul was lonely on his missionary journeys?
ME: I'm not sure. But you aren't Paul.
MYSELF: No, I'm not Paul. He didn't have Terry or Bradyn or Mom or Kenny and Kim or Nan. Or Roxy and Maddie. I don't think he would have traveled so much if they would have been in his life.
ME: Okay, I'll be back. Gotta make a phone call......
