homesick for alaska

Yes, it's crazy, but true...I'm missing Alaska so much right now it hurts. Is it the place, the people, or the sense of purpose it holds for me that I miss the most? The answer is - yes! :) It's all that and knowing there's more to do there...meeting physical and spiritual needs of the people in our most beautiful of the United States.

My background picture on my laptop is this one of the kids and I at the B&G's Club...still! Oh, for one more more minute to share the love and hope of Jesus with them. Maybe one day soon, I'll return. I can only hope and pray that it is sooner than later. :)

Until then, I have a similar type outreach to the Picnic in the Park to plan here at home for late October...can't wait to see how God moves!

Take my loss and take my gain
Take my trials and take my pain
Take my life and let it be
All that You would have from me
Don't let me go
Hold me close to where You are
Don't let me go
Take my heart, take all of me

Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
