So, last summer I set to updating the house in Colorado. It was very consuming, very challenging; and very, very good for me in so many ways. After some furniture and belongings returned from Mongolia, I was on a plane back to Mongolia. Hmm. It seemed to be a law of nature that wherever my stuff was, I was somewhere else.
Fast forward to January, 2011. I am HOME. I'll still be doing lots of travel to meet up with Randy in Mongolia and other places, but my base will be here in Colorado. ...and I am enjoying a foretaste of what heaven surely must be in the form of home.

My Home and Heart now seem to reflect many places but especially the US and Mongolia. But you know what? Ultimately, my dwelling place is in the Lord--and I believe that He puts the longing for home in our hearts, wanting us to realize that our hearts are only at home in Him.
LORD, You have been our dwelling place
for all generations.
So, I am living in Mahanaim. In December we took a 2-week trip to Israel; and lo and behold, Mahanaim was mentioned in the guidebook--it's actually a place on the map! It was a reminder and confirmation to me. My home is certainly in 2 places; UB and Colorado. With lots of travel to places in between. I hope you will stay tuned for updates along the Scenic Route that God is guiding me along.
