Re-Entry...

Re Entry is a good way to imagine all of the many the challenges that occur when one of our family members has been pulled from the home and their regular course of living into a different lifestyle for a period of time, and then is thrown back into the regular course of living and all of the trials and adjustments for everyone that happens during the period of time afterward.
.

We have experienced this in the past when I have gone to girls camp for a week at a time. Me, surrounded by girls all week, and teaching the gospel, and out in nature... and the boys with their freedom from Mom being here to enforce all the responsibilities of home.... totally different for both us, and then re entry back into our regular responsible course of living...

it is difficult for EVERYONE, and can be intense at times!
.

There are many different worldly ways to understand Re Entry:
.


Atmospheric reentry is the movement of human-made or natural objects as they enter the atmosphere of a planet from outer space, in the case of Earth from an altitude above the "edge of space". It involves high velocity, extreme heat, things will break off from the vehicle during re entry. It sounds really intense!
.

There is also Prisoner Re Entry which involves the use of programs targeted at promoting the effective reintegration of offenders back to communities upon release from prison and jail. The process for them can involve re teaching of life skills needed to succeed in the community and become law-abiding citizens using tools like drug rehabilitation and vocational training, and work programs, and implements accountability. Very intense as well!

.

Then have you ever heard of Wave Re Entry?
The "backside re-entry" in surfing is a fairly basic move, but it requires excellent timing and body positioning to be completed effectively and avoid severe injury. Extreme intensity!!
.
I also heard about a program that teaches Re Entry from Study Abroad... I had never even thought of that! But having a friend that recently did this in England and returned... I could relate to the challenges that re entry would provoke. Going abroad and having a powerful experience and so much potential of great personal growth, mobilizing social skills and activating civil engagement, and all the enhancement for a future professional life and the knowledge you would gain in every aspect of your life from this kind of adventure... and then how to apply that back into the world you lived back home. More intense than I had even thought about!
.
Depending on your perspective, Re Entry can mean different things, with different experiences, and challenges, and levels of difficulty and varying degrees of danger.
.
But rest assured, we are living it here and now... and it is INTENSE!!!
