Has It Already Been a Year?

Last year, on August 12th, Rachel and I boarded a plane in Bali, Indonesia, and began our long flight back to the United States. So much has been jam-packed into this last twelve months.

Time certainly flies, doesn't it?  Image found here.
Some of it has been difficult...
  • a long and bitterly cold winter
  • months of work that, although enjoyable, was unstable
  • re-adjusting to new dynamics of life back in the States
Some of it has been a blessing...
  • reconnecting with people who I rarely saw while living overseas
  • seeing Rachel bond with a larger family than just me
  • seeing her thrive at school
  • being blessed finally with a full-time job
I have learned much about trusting God when I don't see clearly what lies ahead. I am still and always learning that no matter how much I think I know, I can do nothing apart from Him.

I look forward to the adventure of this next year. What will God have in store?
Whatever lies in store, I can be certain of this one rock-solid truth.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. 
Phillipians 4:13


  1. Good to see you online, Julie! I can't believe it's been a year already.

    1. I know. Time has really flown. I hope all is well for you.

  2. How's the school year going so far? When did students report?

    A year? crazy.


Any thoughts on this post? I would love to hear from you.
