Ruth 1:19

They went on until they came to Bethlehem. When they arrived, the whole town got excited, and the women there exclaimed, “is this really Naomi?”

‘Och, you’re just the same’.

“I do hope not after 18 years.

Experience has knocked me, grown me, reshaped me, textured me, with lumps and bumps in my psyche which used not to be there. 

But where nobody knows my past, I feel as if I have none. And if I have no documents, it’s as if I don’t exist. “

So home changed. And identity changed. For Naomi. And Ruth. And all the displaced people in the Philippines. And Pakistan. And flooded out in Kent. And me. And you. Continued though with you, Lord God. Re-established with others.
