On the Road Again


The time has come for me to once again spread my wings and see some more of God's green (or white :()earth. And this time, with it's with three long lost friends!! :) Jamie, Rachel and Meagan - good friends from church back home - are flying over to see me and experience a bit of Europe for a few weeks. I am meeting Rachel and Jamie in Munich, Germany, tomorrow. We are renting a car and driving around the German and Austrian country side, visiting Salzburg and a few other cities. Meagan is meeting up with us later in the week, and then we are all heading back to Praha. As mom said, I'll take on my role as teacher by day and tour-guider by night and we'll finish off the week with a weekend trip south to Vienna, Austria. Needless to say, I am very excited!!! :) :) Also needless to say, the posts here will be few, but I promise to update and fill you in when I get the chance! You can be praying for fun, safety, and nice weather! :)

Have a wonderful next few weeks and I will talk to you later! Love and miss you all!!

So, the past couple of weeks have been pretty turbulent. Kind of in every area of life. I can't go into too much detail here, but lets just say I've been learning that when life seems smooth, or even boring, I have to just be aware that it probably wont stay that way for very long. You can be praying for the smoothness to show itself again, but I'll also accept prayers for peace, strength and a sense of God's presence in the midst of it all. You can be praying that for some of my friends here, who I've become close with, as well. One thing I was reminded of recently is that the world around me, and even (especially??) the emotions inside of me, are always going to be fluctuating. The thing that I need to do is hold on to what I know is true, in the midst of all of that...

On a brighter note, the weather here has been amazing the past few days, and it's definitely wet my appetite for spring!! The snow is all melted, except for the few stubborn piles here and there, and the skies have been looking glorious. On Saturday I was able to get out and enjoy it, delighting in the fact that I could get away with wearing my light jacket and sunglasses. :) I also got to spend some wonderful time having lunch with my good friend Jess, and playing some cards (Canasta! :) with Michelle over pizza in the evening- all of which made the day that much better. I looked for a nice spring picture to put up here, but I was so busy loving the weather that I forgot to take a picture of it. There will be more chances for that later, I guess.

Anyways, that's all for now. Enjoy the rest of your week! I love you guys!
