for these things, I give thanks

Date November 27, 2008

  • breaks in the clouds and thinking out loud
  • front porch swings and sunburn stings
  • second chances and nighttime dances
  • Sisser’s talks and camp trail walks
  • hope with feathers and changing weather
  • empanadas and breakfast at Momma’s
  • church bells and ocean swells
  • singing a-cappella and stories about Bella
  • morning runs and Wonder Bread buns
  • my spot on the floor and eating s’mores
  • straight outta shady and all my Katies
  • frisbee friends and Where the Sidewalk Ends
  • Colombian smiles and travel files
  • skies of blue, friends like you
  • and Jesus, a cross. Grace for the lost.

    I heard about the AWESOME things you are doing from Drew McNeil over in Italy and wanted to try and tall to you sometime about what teaching in Columbia is like and how God has been working during your time there. I am praying about possibly teaching at a Christian School in Bolivia next year, and would love to hear from you on all the ins and outs of life there. Also, your notes are GREAT 🙂 Have a wonderful day!
