Today is my 21st October 23.
Every single one has been different. I do not specifically remember each one. Which is probably good. But it does make me think about if I will live a 22nd one and what will be different, what will be the same? I do recall that around this time last year I was asked to pray about joining the cross cultural team for a summer of missions. How much has happened in a year. I went. I learned. I was changed.
Change: to make or become different
While I was in Thailand my family changed. A man with a massive heart for people took his life. My uncle pete. I still can’t really wrap my brain around it. He wore himself out helping people. His booming laugh, and I mean it when I say booming, would echo through the house. Even in his super handy man manly self, he was afraid of our neighbors dog. Comical. He is greatly missed.
My thoughts are a little scattered these days as I am learning loads about what I believe and how to live it out.
I really wanted some extra crafty blog post. But if you would just check out this link it would be appreciated.
