Robin: Home is where you dwell…
“You Belong….” – See more HERE
The idea of what “home” represents has shifted considerably over the last 9 months while living in Germany. Those things I held so confidently as the things that would sustain me and see me through the loneliness of being away from everyone and everything I know failed miserably. I spent the last several months mourning the things that weren’t to the point where I suddenly realized I MUST awaken my heart to the things that could be catalysts for change and growth within me. Changes I would not have thought to ask for. People I would have never encountered had I not had to seek connectedness elsewhere. I considered listing these beautiful people here but I know I would leave someone out so I have made it my mission to value them personally.
This mixed-media piece above represents the beginning of some inspirations birthed from this season that is closing in the next 14 days. Oh how I am ready to see it end! And yet, I KNOW the changes I have experienced could not have been chiseled by any other means. So I do extend grace to those who thought they could be there but were not. I ask for mercy for those times when I broke those promises to the people I care about in their most desperate moments and I prepare for the shifts that have occurred as a result of this extended separation.
Robin, it sounds like you are very, very happy to be heading home. Thrilled for you! Fingers crossed for a smooth relo back home!!!
Your multimedia pieces are wonderful. You are truly a creative inspiration.

robin, i love your perspective on this. glad you are heading home, but also very glad your gained so much from your time across the pond.
Thanks so much you guys! I can’t tell you how much I have appreciated your encouragement during this season.
Cathy, yes I am moving back to Arizona for about 6 months and we may return to Germany again depending on my hubby’s deployment situation with the Navy. But for now, I take a breather!
what a wonderful experience…being stripped of all you know and redefining or furthering discovering who you are and who HE wants you to be.
Amy-you NAILED IT!
