As my first full week of being home comes to an end I am reminded of just how amazing our God is. Jet lag was like nothing I have ever experienced. I was tired, then wide awake, not hungry, then really hungry and all of the ab0ve was at the wrong times. I was depending on the Lord to make me well and He did! This week I have realized I am very different and it's for the better. I thought I might list the top ten ways I'm different (in no particular order), so here it goes! ENJOY!
1-I'm extremely grateful and blessed for everything in our house
2-I love my job and i'm so blessed to have it, but it is not my whole life
3-I am much more patient
4-I found compassion in my heart (I thought I didn't have any)
5-A piece of my heart was left with those kids in Cambodia
6-I want others to have the passion for missions that I have now
7-I realized how blessed I am to have a husband and family that is good to me
8-I depend on God A LOT more (basically depend on him for everything)!
9-I'm ready for kids and I'd really like to adopt a child (either international or from US)
10-I have lost 8 more pounds which puts me below my goal weight!!!
"O Lord you have searched me and you knew me. You know when I sit and when I rise, you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my laying down, you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord. You hem me in-behind and before, you have laid your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. Where can I go from your spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; If I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me. , your right hand will hold me fast, If I say "surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me, " even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like day, for darkness is as light to you. For you created my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."
