Two Months

Well friends, today is the day. Two months ago today, I stepped off that plane, back in the United States after over two years of living and serving in China. 
Why is this day significant? 
While I was overseas, I came home three times, the longest being for 2 months last spring in order to rest and raise support for a second year.
When people have asked me "what is it like being back?" I would say, "ask me at the 2 month mark."
Well here we are. 
I don't feel much differently than yesterday. 
Or the day before. 
Or the day before that. 
Since arriving home, part of me has felt that this was only another temporary visit but another part of me knew that this was for good.
At least for now. 

I think the most frustrating is not being any closer to knowing what it is the Lord has for me next than I was two months ago.
But through this new season He has been faithful. 
And I am thankful for where He has be right now
I know He will reveal the plans He has for me but not until the time is right.
So for now, I'm right where He wants me.

"The Lord will fight for you; you only need to be still."
Exodus 14:14

Have a wonderful weekend! I am off to a women's retreat for the weekend. Looking forward to worship, listening to a great speaker, relaxing at a place which is very near and dear to my heart (other than the foster home) and spending time with amazing women who love the Lord!
