Thinking about: How great it has been to be here in Recife with Isanon's family. We have been here for 5 days now, and each day has truly been great. It is such a blessing to be able to have everyone together in the same place. I was a little nervous about feeling uncomfortable and what not - but I have felt so welcomed and so comfortable. We are truly a family, and getting to know them all better has been the best.
Reading: I brought the book, Orphan Train with me....but, we have been doing too much for me to have any time to read - and I am perfectly okay with that!
Listening to: I've been listening to music in the mornings while having my devotional time before coming down stairs - and this song is on the playlist twice. I love it.
Watching: The world cup. We've gone out a lot while being here, but the outings have been scheduled around these soccer games. When we are at the house....the ONLY thing on the TV is soccer.
Thankful for: As I said earlier, this time with family. I don't want to be repetitive, but I truly am thankful for this opportunity. Getting everyone together in one place is not easy, so having this time is truly a blessing. I am also thankful for this little break with Isanon. Things can get very routine at the Mountain - so it has been nice to have some time with him away from the Mountain.
Goals for this week:
- I have no other goal for this week but to relax and take advantage of this time.
Verse of the week: Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 4:16
