A Glimpse of Heaven Through the Eyes of a Runner.

A heaviness of heart, a slowing of the mind, a tightness, and tears.

It’s been a year, a year, a year.

It’s been a year since I left paradise, a part of me.

Australia, I miss you more than I can describe. I miss adventure. I miss exploration. I miss peace. And I miss me.

I want to return to what I was and who I was but time, time, time.

It says no. It speeds up. Senior Year is almost halfway over. How did a year pass?

 

Already.

I long to return, to the place, to the people, to me.

Heaven. I got a glimpse of how heaven will be in my seven months in paradise.

I understand the longing to be where you can’t. I long for Australia, but even more so, I long for heaven. If this was a glimpse, I can’t wait for the whole picture to be painted.
