I have been realizing that I almost rarely have the thought anymore of, "oh my gosh, I cannot believe I live in Africa!" That is surreal in and of itself. As I drive our friends around, I look at what is familiar and not foreign. I see my neighborhood or my kids school. I think with this season will come a new relationship with the Lord. I am actually surprised how long it took for me to get here. I guess living in Africa takes awhile to get used to. BUT, now that the newness has worn off, I believe the Lord wants to do a new work in me.
I am not sure of all that it will entail, but I do know that I am really enjoying, at this moment, the peaceful rain outside and quietness of my home. Not a bad way to start a new day and a new season. Quiet before the Lord!
