"then we shall leave it in His hands" (Fiddler on the Roof) Since dropping our son off at college years ago, this quote has been used in our family a lot! We are all comfortable with the knowledge that God has called us to be a missionary family, but by far the hardest sacrifice we have been called to make is being separated from family. The past 4 days were an unexpected time of joy as our son "just happened" to be in the US from N Ireland for a wedding when we were here with his sister, waiting for the birth of our granddaughter. He left today and we truly do no know when we shall see him again. Maybe in about a year and a half...but, then God does know and we shall trust His plan.
Baby did not choose to make her appearance so that Uncle Seth could meet her. Her "due date" was yesterday and we're still waiting.
I'm continuing to walk most days, pay attention to what I eat, check in once a day on Spark, and other than that, I'm totally enjoying time with family.
