Hello from sunny Texas (which I view from self-isolation)!
After a whirlwind last-minute flight over the Atlantic, I am back in the good ole’ US of A!
Due to a lot of reasons (naturally including Covid-19) I made the decision to leave Ireland. While it broke my heart to have my adventures cut short, it was obvious that my planned adventures were not going to happen this year.
It was time to come home. While I didn’t have the experience I planned, I had the experience I needed. You would’ve thought by now I would have learned that God does not listen to my plans…Ha. Good one, God!
Now, as I face 10 more days of self-isolation, I am left with the quiet to calmly ponder what I am going to do next, when the world hopefully starts to return to a form of normalcy. Discernment time! It’s hard not knowing what’s next. I am trying to calmly breathe into the darkness and uncertainty, trusting that whatever the coming light will reveal is his will.
Upon returning home I find that though cheesy, it’s true. There’s no place like home! When I arrived home, I immediately felt so much peace. I didn’t realize how much stress I was under until it was gone. There is nothing like the comfort of home and the simple joys that home offers!
Hope all are staying strong and calm in these uncertain times.
Jesus, I trust in You!
