My husband is going on his first mission trip --to an orphanage in Haiti. Soon. He's thrilled to go since he's wanted to help build for years.
Me? I'm thrilled for him too. I know it will be a life changing experience and maybe one we both need right now.
But it makes me wonder why I wasn't as willing to go as well since I was the one who always thought it would be wonderful to be on a foreign mission field.
And now I would rather stay cozy in my own home, with my own bathroom and own brands of food. I asked him this morning if he was apprehensive at all. "No," he said. No long drawn out worries or concerns. I'd have a list a mile long. I do when I drive more than an hour away.
I guess God knows who to call where and when. I know He has a plan in all of this and my part is to stay home this year and pray.
Like any event in our life, I'm excited to see what unfolds next. Are you in the midst of something too?
