Settling in….

I’ve been asked what I miss about the States and I have to say nothing! This is not a negative, it is an indication of how wonderful it is to be in the center of God’s will for my life. No looking back like Lot’s wife, I am not interested in becoming paralyzed. I am looking forward to taking life to another level. There is something to be said for resting in Gods’ will. You can’t buy peace, but yet if you find it you need to pursue it with all your heart. And that my friend is exactly what I’m doing!When you allow God to write the script of your life, you are guaranteed a happy ending. Even when the plot twists and there is conflict in your story, the end is always guaranteed to be great. So allow him to be the director, producer, and the finisher of all you do. Trust me, it’s all good and He makes everything beautiful in its time.

adjustments and the rest…

Everyone keeps asking me how I’m adjusting to living in Ghana and I have to say there has been no adjustment! I suppose that is the real way to know if you are in the center of God’s will. It has been seamless. No struggle, like sliding down a jello mountain. I’m still waiting for my belongings to arrive from the states and then I will move into my house! Yay! I’ve had a house in my heart for years and now I finally get one and its cheaper than my apartment was back in Chicago and a whole lot bigger! Truly the blessings  of the Lord maketh rich and add no sorrow. Funny the small things that are making a big difference for me since I got here. Like truly lazy Sundays… fancy that. Going to church on Sunday and really resting the rest of the day. I’ve discovered the difference observing the Sabbath makes. I actually feel refreshed and ready to start my week on Monday. Clear-headed and ready to jump in. I definitely think I get more done because I took the time to recharge my battery. Now Gods’ Word says that if we turn away from doing our own pleasure on the Sabbath He will cause us to walk on the high places of the earth. Could it be that rest sets the atmosphere for promotion because we are better equipped for the climb after a good rest? Just a little something to think about. how much do we really accomplish when we are stressed, overworked, exhausted and grouchy? You can’t afford not to rest! Take a breather, trust me everything will still be waiting for you when you get back to it.

Hey thanks y’all for all the good wishes. I love you ever so….

Packing/Unpacking

Well finally the last box is out. Why is it that packig takes so much longer than unpacking? Perhaps because it is far easier to destroy than to take inventory…
going over the details of one’s life is truly revealing about what you treasure. What you are willing to let go of is even more interesting. Finally, I’m all packed up and ready to go. Saying goodbye to the home I had known for almost ten years was bitter sweet. sad to part, excited to move on… Well Lord, here I come!
