Rainy Days.

Monday, September 17, 2012

Today is Monday, September, 17th. While most people hate Monday's, I actually like them. It is the only day Mitch and I both have off together (technically I have everyday off seeing as I do not have a part-time job at the moment, but whatever). Today also happens to be a rainy day. I have never been a fan of rainy days. I prefer the sunshine, But don't we all? :) 
Anyway, I am thankful for my husband, who rain or shine always tires to cheer me up. And today he reminded me that it's only 10 more days till my birthday! 

As I sit in our little home and watch the rain, I can't help but think about what my 24th birthday might hold. I have been at a different stage of life at almost every age. 18 was the age God opened my eyes to missions, 22 was the age I got married, and now here come 24. 

Saturday night we prayed over and said goodbye to our friends Josh, Autumn, and Monica before they left for the Philippines for 2 years. I was reminded that this time next year, that will be Mitch and I. 

24 will be the age of allowing Jesus to prepare my heart and mind for living 2 years in another country. At 24 years old, Mitch and I will board a plane with a one way ticket to a foreign land. This brings joy to my heart. I am excited for what's to come. 

God bless Josh, Autumn, and Monica who are faithful servants to Christ. We cannot wait to hear about the wonderful things the Lord does in the Philippines!
