We got home last night around 7pm and were greeted in our driveway by 3 of our couple friends. It was a complete surprise! We were so happy to see familiar faces, get warm hugs, and a generous amount of food! Good friends are the best, especially ones that know we wouldn't have time or the will to go to the grocery store today. We had yummy muffins this morning & will have homemade casserole tonight for dinner. Thank you "no kids club" community for your warm homecoming :)
I'm sort of hiding out today. After 30+ hours of travel yesterday and a 14 day period that rocked my world and changed my life, I don't have very much motivation to get back into the "daily grind". To be honest, nothing seems to be very important. I know I need to get back to work, clean my house, go through a pile of mail & email & voice mails - but none of it really seems to matter right now. I want to take some time to digest what God has done and pray about how He wants to use our story to reach more people.
So if you will, please pray for us the next week or so as we adjust to life back at home. Pray that while our hearts continue to be broken for the people & places we came in contact with we will be moved to action. That we would believe in the power of prayer & the power of the stories we have to share and that we would be bold & confident in sharing them.
I so look forward to sharing story after story with you guys on the blog over the next few weeks. I pray that you heart will be moved to action as well.
Until then, I'll be lounging in my very comfortable home with the people that matter most: my family (and yes, that includes my dogs). Resting. Praying. Regrouping. Trying to make sense of the past 2 weeks. Thank you for being patient and thank you for your prayers.
