Coming Back

What a weird feeling to be back in the states. It is nice to be back but it feels strange. The world is at our finger-tips. It is funny to turn the knob on the shower and know it is going to be warm....
going to the drive through to get any food you could want, what simple joys we take for granted. Or just being able to walk down the street and know I am free to say what I would like. I should not always but I have the freedom if I wanted to. It is fun being back and seeing friends and family but it is a weird transition. My life has been changed in ways that I can't always express to people who have not been there! That is why I am glad Norris and I had these experiences together! How wonderful to be so close to my hubby from the Wonderful year we were able to have! What a great blessing!

What does the future hold???? That is the million dollar question! How exciting that Lord knows exactly where we are going to be! no worries for us! Just faith.....I hope we have enough during the hard times!!!! With him we will have enough!! He is MORE THAT ENOUGH!!!!

One thing we have had the joy of doing is DOCTOR appointments!! YUCK! Being gone for the year we had a lot to do! We needed to go to the Eye Doctor and the Dentist! Well why does it have to be so expensive! No fun at all!!! Oh well know we are healthy....or at least on the way to being healthy! We have a couple more dentists visits but what else is new!!!!! But I will get my new glasses today so that is fun!!!!

"Oh Lord help us in the future to focus on you and not THINGS! Help us to keep you as our focus and direct our path for the future!"

Times be a changin'

Well I am leaving Italy in about 48 hours! I am a little excited but I will be sad to say goodbye to this beautiful country! Although 5 weeks without my husband is long enough!!! It was a great time to meet new people and learn to grow as an individual!
It was a great program to work with and learn about different operas! I love Madame Butterfly and it was a joy to learn it even better, covering Butterfly. Someday I hope that I will be able to perform the role. It is funny how life changes though and I wonder where the Lord will take us and whether or not I will sing opera for the rest of my life. It has been quite a whirl-wind year and I look forward to seeing what he is going to do for the rest of our lives! When I am back in the states I will hopefully be able to right more!

Thanks for those of you who have followed my blog while I was in Egypt. See ya in the U.S.
