The other day Abby Sue, Ben, & Zibby made friends with a family of 4 kids...all with the most beautiful black skin you ever saw. I couldn't help but smile to myself watching them all play "Sharks and Minnows". Instant friends...without judgement. It made me wonder why we can't be more like them, and see the friend before we see the difference?
Lately I feel like we haven't just moved. I feel like, for some reason, we have all been given a fresh start. Not that life was anything but blessed before...I just think that I'm starting to see this as more of a beginning for us as a family. His story, written especially for the five of us. I have no idea if we will be here for 2 or 20 years. I'm not supposed to know or worry about that. I just know that we have been taken out and placed here for a purpose, and that is.. to witness the wonderful love of God.
p.s. what's the home-remedy for homesickness???
