It is a day for unpacking. It is a day of being so thankful for what it feels like to come home! Every item I pull from my jumbled suitcases brings blessing and smiles. There is the dress from wedding joys. I will forever be grateful for the love this couple found together.
I will forever remember the joy of being with my mom and sister as they experienced Guatemala for the first time. I will never forget God’s gracious provision of this miracle on the 4th of July. It was a different kind of family reunion! One to cherish.
Oh there are the tissue flowers from VBS in Mexico! The bracelet I still have to finish making; the mask of a lion. I hear the children’s laughter. I see the shining light in our teenager’s spirits. Notes fall from my journal and I am reminded how faithfully God spoke to each of us every day. My heart is filled up, over flowing and spilling all over the day.
