Today I am dreaming of a simpler life.
Today I want to give Faviola a hug.
Today I want the sole purpose of my life to be living out Christ's Great commission.
Today my heart is missing the peace of this second story balcony.
I long to be back on this balcony again. Puerto Lempira is hot and humid and there aren't many times during the day when one isn't wiping the sweat from their brow, inside our bedrooms the air is a bit stuffy and stagnant but somehow... on that balcony... life... is perfect.
At all times of the day there is a constant gentle breeze bringing refreshment to weary souls and bodies. My heart yearns to be there... to sit in the stillness of the night, engulfed by the freshness of that life giving air. The air which seems to carry the Holy Spirit with it. The air which brings a peace of blessed assurance. The air that gives one the strength and rejuvenation to carry on for another day.
If I close my eyes I can feel the breeze coming over my shoulders and across my cheeks.
In that moment time stands still.
In that moment all is well with my soul.
