leaves me breathless...

in a good way... God is moving so fast... He is pouring on the blessings... we are just trying to write fast enough... find buckets big enough...

We will not pass this way again.  Of course, we will return to the states after our first two-year term in Uganda, but we will return changed.  Our boys will feel like we're leaving home to come back to this place where they have faint memories.  So we're trying to live well- carve the memories deep- savor every moment.  It's gloriously exhausting!

97.2% (which also means just 2.8% to go!)
how blessed He is when people catch His heartbeat for the world

  1. This is such a beautiful post. I have several friends who live overseas as missionaries, and I recognize that bittersweet, exhilirating time as you're beginning to realize you have one foot in each country :) Your sweet boys are precious! I'm praying for you all during this time in the "home stretch."

  2. I heart Mondays nowadays, and I’m not sure I’ve said this – but what you guys have done there – I’m in awe. And my favorite from your list today… kindred spirits a whole day of quality time unhurried friendship (◠‿◠) Because I can see the joy in the picture – and I heart God’s joy shared between friends.

    God Bless and keep you and yours

  3. I'm so glad I stopped by today! I was reminded of what my pastor always says, "Are your buckets of joy the size of thimbles or so heavy you can't carry them?" Glad to hear yours are overflowing. "A church that has caught the vision. . ." -- this one struck me today. I know how hard it must to be raise the support you need in these times. Praise God for those who really SEE!
