was it all a dream?
It’s Sunday morning and I’m sitting in the corner leather chair of our local Starbucks, trying to wrap my mind around all I just experienced last week in Rwanda. For some reason, the re-entry this time has been really hard. Maybe because I’ve highly anticipated this surprise dream trip since the very beginning of 2014? Maybe because it’s summer, and coming home meant being thrown back into full time mom mode? Maybe because unlike the last few trips I’ve taken, I don’t have another one on the calendar just yet? Maybe because that trip was unlike any trip I’ll probably ever take….
I don’t know what it is, but it’s hard. I’ve been re-reading my posts, and instagrams, and reading through all of your comments this morning. trying to take it all in…
I loved getting to share on the blog about Grace and how she has empowered me and given me purpose in my work as a Noonday ambassador.
I loved getting to share about Baraka and the work that IJM is doing in the field and how like her, we can all be advocates. We can all sing a song of empowerment and justice together – think of what could happen when we all just play our note? Together we make a beautiful song.
I have another post I can’t wait to share with you this week about International Justice Mission and how we can all join hands and be part of their work of bringing justice to the poor. I am fired up about this organization, y’all – they are the real deal. and I can’t wait to share that passion with you.
Are you doing the She Reads Truth justice plan right now? it’s not too late to start – I’ve loved studying and learning more about biblical justice and what we, as believers, are called to. Download their new app for free on the app store, or follow along on their website here.
this feels more like a public service announcement. but y’all, I still don’t have the words. I pray that as I get a little bit of time here and there alone to process, that I’ll continue to share stories with you here. As my bestie Brynn told me before the trip, “I don’t feel like you will fully process what this trip means until long after you’ve returned”. So true, Brynn. I’m diving into an ocean here, and there’s a lot to swim through.
finally, I’m clearing out some samples to make room for my fall Noonday samples – and having an AUCTION style 36 hour shin dig over on my personal Facebook page starting Monday morning at 8am CST. Starting tomorrow at 8am CST, even if we aren’t Facebook friends you should be able to access the album. You can find it here.
well friends, that’s about all I can muster today. I just had to pop in and tell you a little bit about where my heart is. I would appreciate any prayers you want to offer up on my behalf. Enjoy your Sunday.
