This is the best part of this morning.. the FREE starbucks GINGERBREAD latte given to me by God!!
So guys.. an incredible last few days in Ireland. God has given us such incredible weather.. incredible times.. I Have been soo spoiled by God. I love how He knows my love language. Yesterday morning when we went to Starbucks they gave us a card for a free CHRISTMAS gingerbread latte.. you guys don’t understand. This is my favorite coffee.. haven’t had one because I was in nepal this time last year. How great. FREE goodness from heaven.. and they upsized it for free! love it.
So two days ago we rode the train to a day at the Irish sea. It was a “wee bit” overcast but we had an incredible time anyway. We really believe God held his umbrella over us so we could enjoy the ocean without the rain. It was so much fun. Then that night we went over to mark and andrea jones, missionaries here home. I love how connected the body of Christ is.. we had gone through a field prep training together but really only knew eachother for one week.. but we had a great time catching up like old friends.
Today we went back to downtown dublin.. and I went to a coffee shop and just took some time alone with me and Jesus.. before that I went to a art gallery. Let’s be honest.. i’m not the art gallery type. but I wanted to pretend. I felt like such a poser.. hehehe.. as I walked around like someone was going to come in and say and what is an uncultured girl from tn doing in here!! The guy that worked there asked me which I liked best.. heehehehe.. the only thing that i could think of to say was.. um.. the pictures of Jesus.. hehehe.. what a great Christian answer huh!
The theme for me with Jesus has been this slogan.. Celebrate Jesus by Celebrating ME! How often do we spend our lives trying to be someone else, or change ourselves, or wishing that we had THAT other person’s gifts and talents.. or wondering why our Bodies don’t look like theirs.. God has been shouting to my heart over and over how I celebrate and bring Glory to Jesus by Celebrating the uniqueness of me. God made me in such a way that I come alive when I come to a cute coffee shop– when I drive through the countryside.. I come alive when I get to wear warm fuzzy snocks and snuggle under a blanket listening to music and sipping hot tea.. All of us have different things that makes us come alive.. this is how we were uniquely made by God. God made me loud and crazy– with the ability to laugh at everything .. with a spirit of adventure to roam europe with really no clue what is going to happen.. with a joy in discipling women to freedom in Christ– Celebrate Jesus by Celebrating the uniqueness of me. So today– think about what makes you come alive.. what makes you most operating in your gift.. what gifts God gives you to show you that you are loved by him.. for me.. today gingerbread pumpkin spice latte and wondering through an art gallery with the lord.. for you it may be something completely different!
I’m leaving tommorow morning for malta. Not sure about internet access or picture posting ability– but thank you soo much for following this incredible journey with me. It’s been awesome. I love how much Jesus loves me. I’m dancing with him.. through europe!!
