We moved here to Bucharest from Minnesota, where we lived with my family for a year and a half. My children saw their grandparents and cousins daily. In spite of the blessings of Skype and phone calls, we still miss them and Joshua's family in Michigan intensely. Jesus left heaven, the glorious face-to-face fellowship with God the Father, to come to earth and spend His first few years here hanging out with a teenage mom and a carpenter. Our move can't even compare.
Some days I feel pulled in
I could go on and on, but you get the picture. For ever frustration, large or small, we don't have to look far in the life of Jesus to realize that He gets it. He's been here. He's lived it. And He doesn't ask anything of us that He hasn't done Himself on an infinitely larger scale in the Incarnation.
For any struggles we have with out new life in Romania there are a myriad of blessings that come with it. We are thrilled to be here, certain that this is where God wants us, and wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Next month we'll write a year in review and let you know some of the exciting opportunities that God put in our path.
