And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8

Back home?

I was warned. A wise woman told me that once I went overseas, I would never feel completely at home again. Now, I completely understand what she meant. Don't get me wrong, there are advantages to being "home", namely being able to spend time with friends and family that I love; however, there are so many things I miss about being overseas that I try not to think about it. Instead of thinking about what I don't have and the places I don't get to be in this next season, I am going to thank God for what he has given me and the places he has allowed me to go.
Thank you for St. Matthew's and their extremely generous hearts.
Thank you for faithful prayer warriors and encouragers all over the world.
Thank you for allowing me to go to cities and towns all over New Zealand, Israel, and Cambodia.
Thank you for your nearness.
Thank you for mountains, valleys, rivers, trees, camels, kiwi birds, and geckos
Thank you for the ability to buy a cell phone and a car.
Thank you for a bed with a mattress.
Thank you for a new pair of Toms shoes.
Thank you for love.
What are you thankful for today?
Peace, love, and thankfulness.
At Ashley Gorge outside of Oxford, NZ
