Home again

I remember when Bob first talked about moving to Roatan
I almost flipped out!
I didn't want to go.
I didn't want to leave the kids.
I didn't want to make another transition

But God changed my heart.
He did.
He is so good about that.
One day walking through the house  in Vernon tidying up this thought popped into my head
"Roatan...what an exciting opportunity!"
That was it.. my heart changed and I became excited about it.
Flying back to Roatan this time I thought my heart would burst!
When we landed in San Pedro Sula I almost clapped and cheered.
When we flew over Roatan I was overjoyed.

I am so glad that the Lord changes our hearts.
I am so thankful to be married to a man who isn't afraid of change or adventure.
I am grateful that we have integrated so well to the people and the culture here.
 Once we got home, and said hi to our neighbors,
I went outside on the deck and laid in the hammock
and sighed.

I'm home.
I laid there and just watched the sunset
I watched the hummingbirds get their last feed.

Then I came in and laid on the couch. 
No music 
Just laid quiet and rested.

Roatan does that to me.
Something about this place just slows me down.
I am grateful for that.

Since being home we have been out and about
Took Melissa to Turquoise Bay for her birthday lunch

did alot of planting of seeds in the garden
visited with friends
taught Carlos spanish
walked on the beach 

sending L.O.V.E.
your way
