Oh man OH MANNNNNNN, this week has been SO good! SOOOOO good!!! Like, GUYS. I thought life as a missionary had reached nirvana somewhere back in Grand Forks, but life continues to just be unbelievably beautiful. God is just so good, and I can't believe how completely and totally He blesses us- even when we don't deserve it. Especially when we don't deserve it. It's all giving me hope that my inevitable return home will also bring joy and meaning and purpose...even if I don't quite trust it yet. I am just so in awe of the grace and goodness of our Heavenly Father, and the living reality of His Son, Jesus Christ, who are both so acutely and completely aware of us...I am so blessed to know of Them. Man oh man, it's been a good week! One the best, really! I just adore the sweet calm that comes as we understand that God will continue to be good even when we become aware of our own nothingness before Him, our complete inability to ever repay Him...that's what humility is all about, I suppose. Learning a lot about that these days!
