Lessons Learned in July (2016 edition)
July has gone by fast. It has been a good month full of walks along the beach, playing Bananagrams with Big D, and getting my classroom ready for school to start. Each day West Africa is feeling more and more like home. It helps that our shipment came at the beginning of the month so I have my cozy blankets and kitchen gadgets. What more could a girl ask for?
1. Time=Good conversations.
2. Our former team in Central Asia received their flight permissions.
A part of my heart will always be there as I continue to pray for God’s love to conquer all. The challenge for me now is to make room in my heart for this new people and place.
3. Fresh Fish is Yummy!!
4. Now is the time to establish Holy Habits.
As our culture is gravitating to look more and more like Babylon, it is more important than ever to develop holy habits so we can stand firm. Consistency is hard. I don’t know why but consistent prayer time is the hardest for me. I don’t want it to become just an item on my checklist but then I also don’t want to neglect this privilege we have of connecting with God.
What have you learned this month? Any new fun tidbits? Any new insights or resolves?
