This girl is going to be 4 years old tomorrow!! I just put her to bed for the last time as a 3 year old and I can't help but be thankful for the wonderful, spunky, adventurous, knows no bounds, little girl that she is growing into every day!! #raisingvoyagers#blessed
Third Sunday of #Advent
Even in the dark of the wilderness
Joy mingles with the salt of our tears.
The songs of Miriam and Mary
Resound through dark wanderings abroad.
When in foreign lands their sweet lyrics play
The Joy and Pain of moments past tether.
Just as Hope is on a trajectory,
So Joy reminisces with an eye to
The future. Joy ought never be far from
The poor outcast, solemnly wandering.
In the fullness of time, Joy shall return.
Joy is here in the clothes of salvation.
Gaudete! Rejoice! Wand’ring folk of God,
Your feet with Hopeful Gospel peace are shod.
Guide: I take your photo in the elephant room?
Me: (apprehensive) It’s a bit unfinished no?
Guide: Yes. But Madam, we are never finished. We must be always unfinished, open and flexible with our mind. You will need that and the strength and good luck of the elephant to travel India.
Me: (in awe) A photo it is! 🙌🏽🙏🏽🐘 #teachablemoments#sunday#vibes
Perks of traveling solo: Getting to do why you want when you want without.
Con: meticulously planning to make sure you have everything so you’re not sleeping on the street in a foreign country.
