Blessings and Stretching

Daniel is a pure joy.  Easily comforted, prefers to be held [which I love], travels great and is just a pure blessing. I am so thankful!

We are still here in Florida.  Waiting on paperwork.  Waiting has never been my strong suit.  Ever.  I want to wait with grace and love those around me but my heart is at home.  I feel like I just got home.  I had, really.

The biggest stretch for me going to Africa was leaving my treasures.  That is/was my step of faith, trusting that God has them covered emotionally, physically and spiritually, even while I am gone.  I felt like I prepared for that in prayer and scripture for the trip.  This time, being gone a week, has been tough.  I know the Lord is stretching me and teaching me through this as well.  He is in control no matter what, no matter the situation and no matter the circumstance.  He is worthy to be trusted and obeyed.

I am so thankful we serve a living God that speaks through His word and has a purpose for each one of our lives!  He is ever molding and making us, transforming us.

2 Corinthians 3:18 (English Standard Version)

18And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.

[please pray for the paperwork shuffle - thank you]


  1. I will pray! I was wondering how you were feeling about being gone again so soon after being gone for Uganda! Now I know. Lord, move the paperwork!

  2. Praying for the paperwork. You are doing great!!!! Proud of your obedience and faith and courage!!!
