surprise!

Posted on

Difficult days yesterday & today. Working with some of these special ones, in their 20s, can take more patience than the 2s & 3s stage. Being torn to pieces with every swear word & insult in the Romanian language yesterday & today being met with hard eyes & spirit while discussing tiny incidents, from months back, that led to destructive, explosive behaviors. Both of these persons saying the same…I want to be loved & have unorthodox ways of showing that need & the fear of not getting that need fulfilled. Sigh. During these times you feel the ache so much stronger to just love with a God given love. You come to realize, quickly, that your own emotional strength and mental processing can do so very little for them. They need the unchanging, grace-filled, compassionate, never ending, hope giving, chosen, leading, patient love of the Father…and nothing else.

But tonight. What an incredible surprise. My dear friend from Scotland made a surprise visit, with her husband. Just spent some hours with her tonight once Caleb was in bed. They are such a part of me & Caleb’s story. Couldn’t have imagined a better evening.

Will head off to Debrecen in the morning & do some swimming with our friends before catching the train to Budapest. Our flight leaves at 6am on Wednesday & we will arrive back 6:30pm in Denver on Wednesday as well.

So ready to be back home. So thankful for this time we have had but I’m so missing Denver. I think Caleb, though, would be more than happy with “another 6 weeks” as he put it the other day. đŸ™‚
