The comments on my last two posts were such a blessing to me. It was so good to "meet" some of you young ladies out there. Even more of a blessing that you are still serving the Lord on your parents' mission field and are MK's like me.
As I read back over those last two posts, I decided that I really needed to add one more thing. I did mention that every love story is different and that is because God's plan for each individual person is unique. I love to tell my story because it is still amazing to me how God answered every one of my prayers even down to the minute details. Don't be afraid to tell Him your heart's desires, even if they seem wild and impossible because He delights in showing Himself strong on our behalf. At the same time though, I do not believe for a minute that your story has to turn out exactly like mine did for it to be right. I have known people who did not have that 100% peace and who really struggled with the knowing part. Some have told me that they struggled with it well into the courtship. For some it didn't work out, and for some it did. All that to say, we can't put God into a box and think He has to do things the same way every time. Sometimes, He doesn't let us know everything all at once so that we learn to lean on Him more, to follow in His footsteps one step at a time, and to realize how desperately we need Him in our lives. Just remember you don't have to be in a hurry even after Mr. Right comes along. That is one of the things that I so appreciated about BJ. He was just as determined as I was to take things slowly. Even though we both had peace that it would lead to marriage, we became best friends long before we could call it love.
On to a different topic, I am feeling SO much better! It feels wonderful to not be a couch potato any longer! Seth and I started school back up today. We have about 40 more lessons to go in 2nd grade. I am hoping to finish sometime around the first week of May.
At the beginning of this pregnancy, I craved tuna. Then that craving
passed. It tastes horrible now! But now all of a sudden, I am craving matoke. I love this Kenyan food. So I made some today,
and decided it is going to be on my menu for a while. :) By the way, the recipe for this dish is on my Kenyan Recipes page (tab above) or at the link for the word matoke.
