May you be blessed in the city, and blessed in the country! (Deuteronomy 28:3)

Airport Musings

I’m at the airport again.

This time, I’m off to the countryside with my hubby and son, to my other home. I’m quite excited about going back — I’ve been in the city for about seven weeks already — as I’ll finally get to decorate my home with Christmas d├ęcor. Yippee!

I’m in Gate 133.

 [Cut! Had to shut down because an announcement suddenly came on saying that we were boarding already…earlier than usual.]

I’m now back in our country home, leaning comfortably on two pillows, and typing comfortably on my laptop stationed on my new laptop table. But let me just share a few things that crossed my mind while at the airport.

So I’m at the airport lots of times due to this lifestyle of city-life-country-life.

                       Our usual carry-on stuff, with an addition: Buster, my son's new stuffed pet

I leave. I stay. I leave again. I stay again. I come and go. I’m here and I’m there. This is the traveler’s life. This is my life. And God’s wonderful promise is “Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out” (Deuteronomy 28:6, NRSV).

Isn't it great to know that God promises blessings on all sides?

Good thing my son is used to this lifestyle, too. While waiting for our boarding announcement, he simply kept himself entertained by playing with his super-hero figures. 

    The guy in orange and green is "Manong," garbage-truck-driver-turned-super-hero (my son said  sometime ago that Manong delegated the trash-taking to Spidey)

Then when we arrived home, he immediately went to his room and started playing his drums with a vengeance (after all, it had been such a long time since he played it!)…even if it was already 10:30 PM! And then riding his bike (with training wheels) around the house as if in a playground. Yes, when you live in two places, every time you come back, things are new again!

Yes, I had a great seven weeks in the city. But I’m glad to be back in my country home.

  1. Great post, Mich!
    Really enjoying your blog.
    I bet Kiddo and family can relate with you: They're in La Union half of the time as well, so half-city/half-beach folk are they! :)

    1. Hi Marts! Thanks for the encouragement! As you can see, the Lord is the one forming the story of my life! And yes, am sure Joe and fam are totally enjoying themselves. The tribe of "here and there people" is increasing! :)
