Thoughts

I do like to blog more than I do, but sadly my life is not that interesting! But there are a few things on my mind right now.
1. California. I was born there, but thats not why I love it so much. I went to college outside Santa Cruz, and it was there that I fell in love with the state, and the culture that is Northern California. I was so excited to be able to take the boys down South this past week; and we had an amazing time! It was a great privilege to see my "old life" and the people that played a part in it, and to especially introduce them to my family. To see how far I have come in the past 8 years, and to see the amazing life that I have been given.

2. SUPPORT. I will be honest, we are ready to be fully funded and heading overseas. We are almost there,  only $191 separates us from being able to leave. Yet it seems like nothing is happening. It is as if Father is once again reminding me to trust.  Not easy, but oh so important.

Enjoy Pictures From Our Journey
