As we drove up to GSF all the kids were there with welcome home signs.
Throughout the week, we have been giving lots of hugs and just been enjoying time with the kids.
There is just something about home you just can't describe.
Way too many words and not enough time.  Maybe I will write more soon.

Always Enough

We are heading back to Uganda tonight.  I don't want to put a lot of thought into this post because we have to get ready to go.  So, here are some of my favorite pictures from furlough.
Ignore the weird quality of this picture ... I have no idea what is going on.
This is a video that my dad and I made to show Churches around America.  I wanted to share it with you all now.
Please be in prayer for safe travels for our family today.  I have to pack the computer now, so that is about it for this post.  I will try to be back soon and will hopefully not be writing about our trip, because hopefully it will be uneventful. :)  It may be a while before I get back here because i may be too caught up in hugs and hanging out with the kids!  Thank you all for your prayers!

Happy New Year!

2012 was filled with more struggles than we would like.

More good-byes {And 'see-you-laters'} than what we think should be 'normal'.
2012 was filled with joy.
Unspeakable joy.
With laughter.
Lots and lots of laughter.
2012 was filled with blessings.
Blessings of all shapes and sizes.
And sweet surprises that blow us away.
2012 brought lots of fun reunions back in America.
And some sweet family time.
Ending it off with this.
So, here's to 2013.  Whatever it may bring.  Laughter or tears, healing or pain.
Happy New Year!  May we always remember that God is the source of our blessings and joy and to hold onto God during the pain and sorrow.
