Lessons Learned

This week I learned more than any one person should be blessed to know.

I learned that my fingers will NOT need surgery to heal...physical therapy will suffice.

I learned that three more families have joined our support team.

I learned that God can redeem EVERYTHING. Everything. Wow.

I learned that the Lego R2D2 (sought by Chan) was hiding in Graham's room.

I learned that running with David is helping me to get faster.

I learned that the battery in David's truck is dead.

I learned that Chandler wants to learn to play the bass. Maybe. Maybe not.

I learned that God can meet all our needs.

I learned that even in our unemployed, pre-field missionary condition, we are rich enough to support a child through Compassion International. So we started today. With Israel Antoine from Haiti.

I learned that the word "prodigal" means "recklessly extravagant." So I now understand why Tim Keller titled his book, The Prodigal God.

I learned that my husband can make amazing marinara sauce.

I learned that I am no longer alone in my experience of having a beauty professional kindly suggest that I wax my upper lip. Someone (who shall remain nameless) now knows my pain.

I learned that our bank has been taking $40 a month from our account for the past four months for life insurance that we did not purchase and do not want.

I learned that I continue to feel better when I eliminate sugar from my diet, darn it!

I learned that we are almost out of Otter Pops.

I learned that the Lord shines the brightest when our circumstances are insurmountable. And I say, "Shine, Jesus, Shine!"
