|“BECA– USE WHEN SEEN IN THE LIGHT OF HEAVEN’S GLORY, EVEN THE MOST BROKEN OF BODIES IS BEAUTIFUL”|
So another gap of time has passed since I last wrote. In that time, we have packed up our entire lives in India and traveled 30 hours (with three boys under 3 years old) back to Florida.
We arrived just over a week ago and have been staying with my (Jessica) parents for this week.
Honestly, it took at least 7 days for us to all get adjusted from the time change and jet lag. Adam was battling a respiratory infection as well which did not help the travel aches.
However, we are now all moved in and situated and so thankful to be rested and with family here.
It was a heart wrenching goodbye to loved ones in India and I am still processing so many thoughts and emotions regarding the goodbye. There are layers of grief and issues with “reverse culture shock” that will slowly be exposed in the months to come. But for now, we turn our eyes on to Jesus and ask for an eternal perspective. And we ask Him to remind us that we are mere pilgrims in this vast expanse of eternity.
(I will share more in the next post about our last few weeks in India)
We are excited and expectant of these next 5 years here. Specifically regarding Adam, we are excited as to what all he will learn in therapies that will help him reach his potential of abilities. He continues to amaze us with his endurance and joy in the midst of so many potential limitations. We adore that boy and think he is pretty awesome.
We plan to be in Florida for at least 3 months. We then plan to move up to Pennsylvania the beginning of 2015.
We are so grateful for your prayers and encouragement. We love you all.
Now that packing is done and we are somewhat situated (smile), I plan to write a bit more on here.
But for now,
