Thought I’d start writing again.
So much is happening, unsurprisingly it isn’t sinking in.
Chris and I have left the US and are currently in Hong Kong for Christmas and a bit of a break – which they say can be very good in making a cross-cultural move. We move to the UK for the foreseeable future January 20, 2013.
Perhaps I should say 20 January 2013 – which admittedly looks very balanced.
This past year has held more than I could have ever imagined – and the effect is rather that like pouring a bunch of cinnamon into water – it won’t get wet…
It’s not that I feel like I’m not in the moment, or anything like that — it is just simply more than I can understand, and I am confident that I will continue to process 2012 over the years to come and will only increase my deep gratitude to everyone who has given us so much help, support, love, and prayers.
It’s all very surreal.
The last blog I kept up with was my xanga in high school and my freshman year of ORU, and while I sit here listening to the same Zach Winters album I likely listened to then, I never would have dreamed I would be where I am seven or so years later. Many things are the same with these two pictures of past and present me:
Blogging, similar pensive music tastes, glasses, over thinking…
And yet, here I am, in Ho Chung, Sai Kung, Hong Kong — a place I had no relationship with whatsoever, with a truly loving man, in-laws that making great efforts to spoil me rotten, on my way to immigrate to England in less than a month.
Here’s to 2013, with it’s adventures, twists and turns, challenges, solutions, and the many great friends and family we will share it with – may God continue to bless us and our loved ones by making the path to follow clear, and the grace and strength to follow it best we can.
