Engaging in my world also brings blessings. It can be meeting with two friends each week and sharing what we are learning and trying to apply as we read Unglued by Lysa Terkeust together. Each week we are reminded we aren't all alone in our struggles. Another blessing when I was able to pray with a national friend for her family in my broken second language. Other blessings have included reconnecting with team members who have come back to help for the summer and being part of a hodge podge small group. By hodge podge, I mean only God could have brought us all together and it is just the right mix.
So as my days turn into weeks and my summer comes to a close, my prayer is that I will find and keep this balance in my life of enjoying my alone time and engaging in my world.
