#FMFParty :: Grateful {oh yes I am!} #missionarylife

Five Minute Friday @ lisajobaker.com
Go ::

it's a humbling thing to be loved.

as I am.

in my mess.

it's a thing full of thanks.



it's a humbling thing 
to know that I couldn't
walk a step in this life
without another...

mama
twin
sisters
brother
daddy
friends who become sisters
who walk with me as a mama.


who share what it is to 
be a woman
in these crazy days
of busy
and grey
and all that can make
us forget a love
so thankful for you 
always, always
you.

and for the family who 
sends us over the ocean
who prays for kids
and prays for teenagers
they've never met
a country most will 
never see


and who give time, money
and lots of heart-love
to send one family
on a journey that 
is all for Jesus.


the humbling things that come
when your car needs
to be jump-started
and it's already borrowed
and the friends who 
are keeping your kids
so you and hubby can 
have time...they come 
& help
and the father-in-law
up before dawn comes
late in the night
to jump start again & 
then the keys somehow
get locked inside 
and it'll be a longer 
time to that bed for 
my tired daddy-on-call.

but it's not the things
like these that those
who kiss our cheeks
and give us hugs 
make us feel. no, it's
the really special
as we break bread & 
take three little kids
to meet face-to-face
those who pray & pray &
pray, though they've never 
met us.

Grateful, yes, oh yes I am!

THANK. YOU. ALL.
WE. CRAZY ALLEMAN MISSIONARY FAMILY.
LOVE YOU!!
WE THANK JESUS FOR YOU!
WE ARE SO BLESSED TO WALK
HAND IN HAND, HEART TO HEART,
LIFE TO LIFE, SPIRIT BY SPIRIT 
WITH YOU...
THIS LONG
JOURNEY HOME :)
