Living a Life Unexpected

A Life Unexpected…

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  When I began to consider starting this blog and what I might call it, the only title that came to mind was “A Life Unexpected”.  I serve an awesome God who had every one of my steps planned out way before I was even a thought, but this life I live now is not one that I ever would have dreamed.
I never dreamed that I would ever be living half way around the world away from friends and family.
I never dreamed that I would be bilingual.
I never dreamed that my family would be able to visit some of the places that we have.
I never dreamed that this foreign country would be HOME to us.
I never dreamed that rice would be a primary staple in my home….and that we would like it.
So, in that way our life is very much a life unexpected, but it is a life of obedience.  God called us to this place, so we had to be obedient and trust that wherever he lead us that he would also take care of us.  He has!!!  So, we continue to live this life unexpected each day excited to see what unexpected blessing or challenge God has planned for us. Sometimes, we trudge through the valley and sometimes we stand on the mountain top, but through it all we praise him for this LIFE UNEXPECTED!!!
