My one word for this year is celebrate, and I’ve had some great opportunities recently to do just that.
What a memorable couple of weeks it has been! We have shared lots of celebrating, family, food, siteseeing and Spanish speaking. Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words, so here are a few thousand…
In other news, I got a job this week! It’s been quite a whirlwind. Driving back yesterday after saying goodbye to Bryan’s mom and grandma at the airport and house hunting in the afternoon, it started to hit me how soon we are leaving (and how much we have to pack). Also, we saw a tornado. The wide open West Texas sky was a spectacular backdrop for the stormy sunset as we drove along the familiar interstate highway. My whirling thoughts stopped for a little while, and I was just present; experiencing the storm with Bryan and marveling at the power of God. I embraced my conflicting emotions and made peace with the silence as we watched the lightning flash in the orange glow of the sinking sun.
More thoughts on the upcoming move soon… I hope you all are feeling as blessed as I am this afternoon. 🙂
