I know you were on the edge of your seat to know what was in my suitcase. You know.. if you read the post below this one.. the suitcase that has been missing for three years, and my teammate from nepal met up with the guy who had brought it home and had recently refound it in a storage shed. Only these weird things happen to me I think. It’s weird that a suitcase was lost for 3 years and now is found! but I was super excited about it.. like christmas.
How fun is God.. because it was full of winter stuff.. LOVE THAT.. just in time.
It made me happy to open it… because along with opening it came lots and lots of memories. Awesome memories… of good times and bad. but memories of a FAITHFUL God who took this girl all the way from TN to Nepal to spend 2 years on the adventure of a lifetime. It even still smelled a bit like nepal. which in case you are wondering is an odd mix of curry, trash burning, a hint of sewage and dog 🙂
So without further ado here are some of the treasures.. Baby hope sat in my lap the whole time.. we had a blast.. well she slept.. but Chell and I had fun!
Here Hope is as we find some of the treasures.. lots and lots of my prayer journals.. some from nepal some I had taken to nepal to remember other years.. and several Bible studies..
Hope clearly anxiously awaiting
hmm.. so I have no idea.. this looks japanese not nepalese.. three years later not sure.. my guess is a nepalese friend gave it to me as a going away present
These hand knit warm tibetan wool socks were my lifesaver in nepal!! it’s freezing in nepal in winter and no heat.. so wore these ALL The time
so wont be wearing those to my next social function.. haha.. but it was one of my favorite nepalese outfits
this awesome awesome down jacket.. it sure came in handy during moments like this in nepal..
Then there were these very random items.. hmm.. maybe I had been out of america so long i forgot there would be cotton bals so I packed them? I remember the black sheep it was a gift from a friend.. called the bhutmos sheep which means naughty sheep in nepalese.. but how did the carebear and random dancing bikini lady make the suitcase? I HAVE NO IDEA! maybe three years ago i knew! ha
Lots of my warm fuzzy pj’s… scarves and lots of jackets. that are fake knockoffs of patagonia and other fancy mountainy like things.. I AM A POSER 🙂
And again did I mention piles of journals and Bible studies.. I cannot wait to read back over these. God wooed me and romanced me during my time in nepal in ways I cannot describe.. so I can’t wait to be reromanced as I read them again
