July 20, 2006

Early this morning we walked to the beach and watched the sunrise. It was great watching Tr and Ty body surfing as the sun came over the horizon. As I sat on the beach and looked across the ocean I thought of Mano in India, Wilam in Africa, Saliba in Palestine and Gigmi & Yassam in Papua New Guinea. They were home this summer, across the ocean. On the other side of the world. The world felt very big when I thought of the distance that separated us. Then I thought about how connected we all were in God. The world didn't seem all that big anymore. I asked God to bless them and thanked God for our friendships
