I'm going home. Well, to my other home. Well, to be really specific, one of my 2 other homes. i guess i have three homes. sydney. florida. and the wait to be home with max. there's a LOT of excitement about going to florida. i can't wait to see my dad and mom, my brother and sister (inlaw) and hold and cuddle my neice and nephew. It has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride getting ready... just a tearing away of what it looked like in my heart months ago, the anticipation of taking our newborn max home with us during july and introducing him to our family... and now, clearly it looks different. Our dreams have been re-shaped... it doesn't look quite as i thought it might... and yet, home is still there, we are going, just minus one in our arms thats now in our hearts. its strange to feel such excitement about going to a place and at the very same time such a sadness that we are going with all three of us.

well... just some thoughts.

another thought. God's grace is so big, so great... there's grace for this very moment and the next.

and a verse.
Psalm 91:1
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].
