I promised to blog every night that I was in Guatemala. I am so sorry to those of you that wanted to follow along with our time here. For a number of reasons blogging just isn't something I have been able to do. I will blog about each day of our trip after we return to the U.S. (which is Saturday by the way) and post pictures, of course.

Tonight I am sitting in a hotel room in Guatemala City with so much to say, but without the words to say much of any thing. We left Antigua today. We visit a children's home for the second time tomorrow. And we return to the U.S. Saturday. My heart is all over the place. My thoughts are racing. I can feel the sting of tears as they come quickly and I cry tonight not because I love Guatemala and do not want to leave (though that is still one reason why my heart is breaking...again), but because while some things were made very clear to me this week, I am leaving Guatemala with more questions than I had when I arrived. Before we landed in Guatemala I prayed, "Please, Lord, show us the way. Tell us what to do. Make it clear and we will do what you ask of us." and tonight I am still praying the same thing and for the same reasons. I am praying for wisdom and guidance. Praying for the constant reminder that His timing is perfect and that all things work together for good for those that love Him and those that are called according to His purpose. Praying for's always peace, isn't it? I am so unsettle tonight...not for any reason in particular and not because any thing bad happened during this trip (because nothing bad happened, though I know this post probably sounds that way), but because....well...I'm not sure why.

This is vague, I know. As soon as I can make sense of my overwhelmed heart and racing mind, I will post again.
