Learning You're Loved
What is in my immediate future?
I have learned, over the last few weeks, that our church family loves us. Ok, so I knew they loved us, but when someone loves you as generously as they have in this instance, it is both exciting and humbling. I won't tell you how much it is costing for Corey and I to go to Israel in February. Suffice it to say, a lot. The trip includes airfare, a very nice hotel, transportation in Israel, admission to a billion places, breakfast and dinner daily, and who knows what else I am missing. Our church sent a letter to the congregation and asked for donations to pay for our trip. Within 3 weeks, both of our trips have been fully funded.
My Pinterest feed is full of sites we will be visiting and views I dream of seeing. I am about to read a novel set in Israel. I have my passport on my desk where I see it daily. My in-laws have volunteered to keep the boys with them in Tennessee.
Sometimes, we learn the most amazing things from the generous hearts of others.
