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….
