A Morning View

"Joy is not gush. Joy is not mere jolliness. Joy is perfect acquiescence - acceptance, rest - in God’s will, whatever comes."

 ~ Amy Carmichael

Oh yes that is so true. And for us it means accepting that God has called us away from the very village that you have shown in your photo (!) - from our home we loved, the place where all our four children were born, where we became a family and we belonged; to a far away country... and I trust Him even as our homesickness sometimes is overwhelming. So amazed that that quote and picture are together!!!

corli - I know I wrote you but I am still amazed at our connection this last week. It meant so much to me to hear your comments!
