Coming Home

14 Aug 10

After a 3 1/2 week trip to some of Great Lake States, we came home to find our yard rivaling the grasslands of the Serengeti.  Our “lions” thought it a great place to prowl around and stretch legs too long cramped in the car.

It’s good to be home…for a few days anyway.  The reunion with toys and books is like Christmas all over again for the kids.  I’m happy to mess around in my own kitchen, and hang clothes on the line again.  But as much as we enjoy our house, it’s starting to feel like a burden…or maybe an anchor—holding us back in our plans to return to Papua New Guinea.  Maybe it’s necessary for me to feel this so I don’t mourn the loss of our home when we do eventually get back to PNG.  Maybe God has other plans for it…or us for that matter.  I don’t know, but in the meantime our house is going back on the market to see what happens.

Love your blog! Have been reading Isaiah this summer and can't help but see God's sovereignty. One quote has stood out to me, "The character of God is the ultimate assurance of His people." (Motyer) What better assurance could we have?

Love you,
Dick and Madelyn
