The circus = rain and mud

A travel blog entry by clara.sayre


We are on a BEAUTIFUL lot today. Absolutely beautiful. We're at a fairground on the edge of town in the middle of a forest. The trees are really tall and the grass is bright green (that may have more to do with the fact that we’re set up around the animal barns…haha). Alex parked us between two barns so we actually have a bit of privacy! Sue was walking Michael’s dog, Lobo, past us and joked that it was like we had our own gated community. That ...

This is a very beautiful setting.

He has been so merciful with us as He has called us to face our big things, and continues to help us as He shows us more and more. The calling on the christian life is huge and is only possible because of His loving help. This dependency is beautiful when viewed through ...
