She fills my life with sunshine

"The place God calls us to is the place where your deep gladness and the worlds deep hunger meet." Frederick beuchner

Nothing like a beautiful sky and beautiful kids

I love this quote. I love that God has called me to work at a place where I am excited to wake up every morning. Where I can't stop smiling every day. And every night I hit the pillow exhausted but content. I am crazy blessed.

One of the 14 year old boys asked me once, "Tia Lily, what is your dream?" That question made me laugh. "Honestly," I told him, "I get to live my dream each and every day." He stared at me like I was crazy before he told me, "You should get a better dream." 

Rosemery's the sweetest
His response made me realize that I don't want a "better" dream. I get to do what I LOVE to do each and every day. I grew up to do what I wanted to do ever since I was three years old. I get to have 100 children. It's crazy the journey God has taken me on. I have only said "yes" and by His grace I continue to say "yes" to what He asks me and trust His will. I don't have to worry about tomorrow will bring.

I am in a place of need. And I am in a place where I am deeply happy. 

About a month before I head back!!! God has been opening up some amazing doors and opportunities for this next year of ministry. I am so excited to get back to Caranavi and see all the kids. I miss them like crazy. 
God bless!!!!!
