Haiti, How I Miss You!

It is so hard to believe I have already been back from Haiti for several weeks. It truly was a life changing trip. Sometimes when trips like that have such an impact it is hard to come home and know what to do. But what I have come to realize is that even though the trip changed much about my perspective and my view on the excess in my life....life here does still need to go on.

I can make changes and I can pray for and love the people of Haiti but I also need to keep things going here. Sitting around longing to go back really accomplishes nothing. I can make it a goal but still need to do the things I need to do.

Does that make sense? Just thought I would put it out there in case someone else has come off a life changing experience and now doesn't know what to do next. Just do the next thing. Whatever that is. Right where God has you at this moment.

One thing that I have found amazing this year is how God has used my "Radical Revival" time and my study of the book of James and my trip to truly give me a heart of compassion and burning desire to do something about all the poverty that surrounds me. Whether that is here or in Haiti.

 I will leave you with one of my favorite pics from the trip!

 Have a blessed day!
