|Africa (front & center), Guatemala (left)|
So every morning I wake up and turn over to see this wall of cherished memories. Pictures reminding me of my visits to villages with the Jesus Film team and smiles of beloved patients. Laughing about the canoe trip (with only one life jacket) I took with friends to Banana Island, Sierra Leone and missing the beautiful sunsets we would see on the sail. The artwork is from all over West Africa and reminds me of the beauty I saw despite the brokenness. My sister gave me the picture in the center, its says "The world is my battlefield. Love is my weapon of choice." Looking at the wall sometimes makes me homesick, but more than anything I am reminded God taught me how to love and gave me strength to do it everyday. He handed me adventures and gave me a purpose with His love. Why do I doubt that He won't do the same here? That is when I know I am right where God wants me and I don't want to miss a thing.
