i am feeling a little bit sentimental right now. i have a headache, and i can't get to sleep, so i started looking at the pictures on my computer. i found all the pictures from our missions trip to the dominican republic from last summer. it's weird how time can make you sort of forget things. you can kind of get so busy with whatever "life" is that you forget about what is really important. i remember how incredibly hot it was. i wish that there was a WAY stronger word for "hot" because it was like an oven. and i remember watching my little 6-year-old aj, playing basketball with the little orphan boys, and my little 4-year-old dealing with all the girls wanting to pick him up and hold him. they never one time complained about the heat. they did not complain about the fact that we had rice with every meal. taking their malaria pills was a little challanging, but we got through it! it amazes me still what an incredible trip it was. my boys are such a gift, and so adaptable to so many circumstances. we have so many different ministries during the week. mondays, wednesdays (and fridays during the school year) are always late nights with the boys not getting to bed until well after 10:00 some nights. God has worked things out so we can do these ministries together as a family, and i am so thankful for the kids attitudes. this summer, i am so excited to be planning a trip to haiti. this year will be a lot different than last year. we will be going with my grandfather, my parents, some adults from church and only 3 teenagers! i am getting excited as i look back at all the pictures from last summer, and remember the different culture, and the amazing way that God used us. i thought that i would post a few pictures to give you an idea of where we were...for those of you who haven't seen them. so here's my deep, sentimental thought for the day. don't get so busy living your life that you forget to remember who you're living your life for. :)
