What I'm Listening To: There's Only One (Holy One), Caedmon's Call
This is the first image that I have posted that I did not take. There is a good reason for this I promise!
Actually, I am not sure who snapped it...but I am glad they did. My better half John, is the silly American in the middle of all those smiling kids. It seems they are each jockeying for the position closest to him in the shot. So cute. I couldn't resist posting this on the eve of his return home. Some people have seen this but I wanted to make sure to share it with my blogging friends. Many of you have followed my journey the last few weeks since he has been gone in India. I have asked for prayer for everything...from keeping him safe to extra patience with my children as I cope on my own. Thanks so much to each of you for your encouragement and prayers. I thought that you might like to see a small glimpse of what he has been up to 4200 miles away from me!
This shot was taken earlier in his trip. The group he is with were visiting a school in the slums of Sugandh. The smiles here are some of the biggest I have ever seen... I mean on the kids and John! You wouldn't imagine all the devastation that lies within a few steps from here by seeing these faces. A good friend of mine saw this photo and remarked that John was proably thinking of his own kids at home when this was taken. That was a sweet sentiment for me to hear...thanks Tim.
As I am writing this, he is still quite sick. As he boards the plane in Dehli in about 5 hours bound for Heathrow, I am praying that God would relieve him swiftly from this illness and give him rest. I am hoping that being in his bed, in his home, with all of us will be some sort of remedy and comfort for him.
See you tomorrow!
