More Borderlands

I am finding the borderlands here.

The place I came from and call home, where I have never been a foreigner, so my passport tells me.

Even though I am an introvert, I really love this place of getting to know others who are different from myself, once I get past my shyness.

Pressing out beyond the familiar helps me keep growing, learning and loving.

Last month at the Bosnian Mosque on the Day of Remembrance, I could remember with my neighbors and help just a little to carry their burden.

The Arab young men my husband works with have been a delight.

Who would have thought that one of them knew how to make raspberry cheesecake!

Yet, I have known for a long time that this is not my true home.

My heart tells me there is so much more beyond this land I see.

Because daily I am there at the borderlands of heaven and earth,

Every time I pray.
