Ready to come home

Believe it or not... There's no place like home.

The children perform tonight and after that, I'm ready to come home!

Its a funny thing, as crazy as it may seem, I am ready to come home. Outside of the few really beautiful churches, and a couple of castles, where we are, Austria all looks the same, that's probably why this crazy picture taker has only taken 170 pics since I've been here.

Maybe there's more to see but we can't because of the rehearsal schedules. Plus I feel like a jerk because I can't speak the language. We have a great guide but I wish I spoke the language, or at least understood it.

I know that it probably seems kind of like a waste... but I'm relaxed which I hardly ever do, I've read, and maybe I'm a little nutty, haven't thought of work much, outside of the people I care about there... but I miss the students and I miss my friends! And most of all... I miss serving God. I'm enjoying it here, but... as Dorothy says...

There's no place like home.

Hebrews 11:9 By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise

Dave & I LOVE to travel! The longest we were gone was 3 weeks and surprisingly, I could have stayed longer! World Traveler is actually my dream job!

The best part of the journey... is walking through the door...when arriving home again!
