I am writing from the Dominican….
I am on a mission trip….
I have many thoughts as I meet new people, experience a new culture, spend time with a team and build a church…
But today I am thinking about my childlike thought that exposed to me the longing of my heart….
I have flown often….
I am usually asleep before I hit the clouds….
But on this trip we got above the clouds and the sun was coming up and I was surprised how I couldn’t stop thinking about heaven….
After all, it is above the clouds, right?
And the beauty of the clouds, the sun, the breaking of the dawn and I felt my mind wondering and hoping….
But I know better and I settled into realize that my child like thought was exposing a current longing of my heart….
To catch a glimpse of Len in heaven….
I didn’t sleep on this flight but I did wonder and pray…..
And we landed in the DR with a confidence in my heart that so much of what I will experience in the coming week would be what Len would love. The water, the sun, the people, the music, the children, the food, the games, the worship…
I will write about my experiences here in my next blog, which I will write as electricity and internet access allow….
