Processing the Summer

I've been back in Northern Ireland exactly one month!  And I've just sent out my last summer prayer update.  You'd think that after a month I'd be able to succinctly and eloquently summarise my summer.. but I can't.  And as I talk to other interns we're still finding things weird - things like my toothpaste tube is in English again, or wanting to laugh at a joke from the summer but knowing those people aren't around to laugh with you!  

Having said that, it has been so good to be back and to rest and to spend time with dear, dear friends.  Thank you all for your grace as I've adjusted to life back in Northern Ireland again.  Thank you for asking questions about my summer!  

I hope to update here "properly" about the summer soon but, until then, this verse seems the most appropriate about the summer:  

“Now there are also many other things that Jesus did.  Were every one of them to be written, I suppose the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.”  John 21 v 25

Because God did amazing things this summer, in me and through me and around me.  It was incredible to be able to witness and experience these things.  And I know that I only saw a fraction of what really happened, because God is a God who can answer prayers in ways we can’t even imagine.  I’m excited to get to heaven and find out what all God did this summer, for His glory.
