I don't really know what my expectations were, but I know my heart was in a good place and was a completely open and empty page for God to write the story as He chose to. Sadly, I can't always say I am surrendered to His plan for me. Surrender continues to be a daily exercise as He is always leading and bringing new opportunities as well as drawing me away from others. His plans are far better than my own! He has done so much more than I ever dared to dream or pray for!
While it is beautiful and amazing here, it is also tough and painful. But that is also what life is like in America or Europe or anywhere else! We are all learning and growing and serving where God has us. This is just my life. This is just one simple blog among millions. But I want to be faithful to use the lessons and opportunities God brings my way, to bless and encourage others.
