I can look back and be discouraged by all the circumstances of the past five months and call it quits or I can look ahead and rejoice in all that the Lord has gotten me through this far.
With God’s mercy and gracious hands all over our travel, we have arrived in Jérémie, Haiti! Mollee and Stephanie, my travel buddies and new roommates, and I arrived at the San Diego airport at 8pm on Wednesday night for our flight at 10pm. I have another long story about the luggage situation at the airport, but I’ll just say this… I flew American Airlines and I checked a total of 5 bags and I only had to pay for one!!
Looking back at my life, one thing has always been apparent to me: life doesn’t go the way you plan. Ten years ago, I thought I was going to be married out of high school. When that didn’t happen, I thought I’d find my husband during college. I thought I would become a high school English teacher and coach the dance team. I thought I would still be in Illinois raising a family by this time in my life.
