My husband has been laid off. Yet with all praise to God, we haven’t gone to that “place” (at least yet). The place that tells you that your worth is your “net worth”, that you can’t really be a family until you have that house, or those kids, or that car… It’s taken a lot of time but I can honestly say that I am in a peaceful place. A place that is located smack dab in the middle of my Father’s hand. It has little to do with what the earth does, or what the people around it may cause. It is secure, safe, and held.
What are we going to do? Well, we’re going to Mexico for a few weeks. We’re trying to see this time as a time freed up. We were able to save (maybe not buy that extra dessert for a while) and we’re going to serve in an orphanage. We’re not going with an aim to restore people, God has the ultimate power there. We’re just going as a chance to serve alongside one another, maybe see something in my husband that I haven’t seen before. See where I can be stretched and grown, the fact that it might take place with a bunch of adorable children, well that is a bonus.
were thinking of going at the end december (soon!).. We are both looking forward to it.
