The kids and I awoke this morning and visited with a wonderful non-profit that does work in India and its surrounding countries. My ex husband and I used to work here when we were first married.
It has been an emotional re-entry for me. The last time I was here I was newly married, idealistic, passionate and desperate to be purposeful in my vision. One of the last things I remember doing here was standing in a circle, holding hands with the people I worked with… on an open plot of land for a ground breaking and prayer ceremony for the building they longed to see built to house and expansion of their work.
And here we were, standing in the very building we had prayed for. Amazing.
The day was filled with love, prayer, encouragement and support for my family. Many moments brought tears to my eyes as I was reminded of my hope, my purpose, my faith and how much I have grown through the trials I have encountered these past years.
This evening we were joined by a couple that were clients in Los Angeles who have moved to Dallas. It was so nice to see their three children and the littlest one I prayed for while still in her mama’s belly. And it was wonderful to connect that family with the wonderful families that I knew some 16 years ago.
The constant prayer being uttered by everyone for me along this journey is for peace and joy. And the client who showed up today has a Hindi name that means Peace and Joy. We concluded the night by listening to a Hindi worship song about peace and joy.
I sincerely hope so. I’d really love to a have a few “boring” years. I’m ready.
