More than a year

It's really easy to get out of the habit of blogging. I guess once the "honeymoon" phase of living overseas wears off, the new things, the odd things, the funny things, the unbelievable things, they all begin to go unnoticed because they all become the norm.

During these few weeks of observing Lent, I decided to take a break from facebook. I spend way too much time on it and am well aware of the major distractions it can cause. I want to take these few weeks to really seek the Lord for the future and spend time in His word, discerning what He has in store for me.

Next month, it will be three years ago I attended a conference in Richmond, VA, taking the final steps to sign up to move overseas for a few years. It's hard to believe this season of life wraps up in just four months. Two years turned into three years and my, how those years have passed by. But I'm anxious to get home to Arkansas from Africa in August, to spend lots of time with my incredible family and reconnect with some wonderful friends.

Maybe during this break from facebook I'll find time to blog. Time will tell...
