Well, here I sit, in my living room, in the States! It has been great seeing my parents and church peeps again. I’m looking forward to seeing my grandparents for dinner tomorrow and welcoming home the rest of my family/church family from Guatemala tomorrow night. I’ve already had steak twice–YUM–and I’m looking forward to some pedicure bonding time with the chicas. Also, reuniting with Velma (my car) has been wonderful 🙂
Unfortunately, coming home means getting back into the normal stress of things. The easy-going lifestyle of Mexico definitely doesn’t transfer. I have to get to work on doing my homework, filling out papers, paying for school, making money, and the rest of the not-so-fun necessities of life.
Above it all, I need to remember what God taught me this summer, and figure out how to use that. If there was one point he drove home, it’s this: when you think you’ve got your life all figured out, packed into a cute little travel bag, with a clear view down the road ahead, he’ll throw a fork into your path. There aren’t roadsigns; you just have to choose a route and trust him. So, here we go.
Thank you all SO MUCH for your prayers all summer long. Don’t stop–Mexico and I both still need them 🙂
