We are home!
We’re hoping to just be a family together at home this Lord’s Day. We are so grateful that the Lord planned to give us this time before Joe goes back to work on Monday. We want to rest and sing and maybe have some ice cream to celebrate. The children have turned into big, sun-browned, Pennsylvania Dutch-speaking strangers! And they have stories to tell that we want to hear!
As we left Hershey and headed back to Lancaster tonight, a sudden rush of emotion overwhelmed me. This chapter has been completed. The open heart surgery we prepared for all those months is finished. It is behind us now. Time to turn the page to the next chapter.
Rejoice, give thanks, and sing!
