But perhaps I am not big enough or gracious enough to let go of my comfort for any long period of time! And if I do that, if I fail to accommodate the people who sometimes need me, and only keep needing things for myself instead – I fail at being the ambassador for the post. The love I represent looks a whole lot different in its service than that, and I fail.


But redemption comes.
