Yesterday we sent out an e-mail describing our decision to stay in Florida until January, and the challenges that come with that decision. We received so many encouraging e-mails and messages letting us know that you are thinking about us and praying for us. Thank you. It does mean a lot.
One friend who had lived overseas for a long time, wrote about some of the benefits that she has seen in her sons as a result of experiencing life in 2 worlds...
Here is some of what she wrote:
*They have friends from all over the world and know how to make new ones.
* They know the Rock who provides what they need even though everything else around them changes.
* They have a strong family support because we have had to grow closer through these changes.
* They have become prayer warriors because God is the only One who knows what will happen next.
Lately, I have been so consumed by the challenges of living between 2 worlds that I have neglected to think about the potential benefits. It was a good reminder to me!
