I feel stumped. I mean, when the title of our blog is “Stones in Haiti sharing their experiences with you…” how exactly do I write about life now? In this strange quasi land of the unknown? Perhaps we should rename the title, “Stones in limbo sharing their experiences with you…”?
One of us is Haiti. One of us is in the US of A. We might as well be on two different planets. Some people, okay more like most, would say that poor Brandon has the rough end of the stick. After all, he did just get stuck by lightening. And what is that about anyway?? You wanna know how jacked my hormones are? I cry at anything and everything normally, but when he was telling me what happened,moments after it happened, all I could do was laugh. Laugh!! At my husband who was freaked out, shocked, and didn’t know what to think. Mind you, he was urging me to go out and buy lottery tickets in the midst of his relating of events, so don’t judge me to harshly for seeming cold hearted. And the whole time I’m wishing I was there-twisted I know.
So it should be almost over. This living apart ridiculousness. Plans are getting more finalized, and we should be off to Nicaragua by mid November. !!! Haiti has turned me into a sceptic, so I guess I probably won’t really believe it until I am standing on Nicaraguan soil.
It has seemed silly to me to post about life now in the states. I guess because of that darn description at the top-it has really been holding me back. But what else am I supposed to be writing about then? If you know me, you know I’m not writing for lack of things to say that’s for sure. So maybe I’ll just change the title and feel better about posting anything I feel like! So this post is dedicated to the fun photos I want to share-and have wanted to share. Simply because they are fun. Because I hardly ever get to post photos of our family and friends, since, well, we haven’t been around them much in the last three years! So here are some fun moments captured on film over the last few months… I’m so far behind, so I will only give a short description below the photo. Enjoy!!

Limbo connotes “transition”, and that’s exactly where you and Brando find yourselves. One foot in Haiti, and another about to step onto the land of Nicaragua. Separation is another meaningful word in your vocabulary, since absence makes the heart grow fonder. Obviously Brandon was not the only occupant of the Office in Haiti, his unseen guest was there to protect him from harm. Things can be replaced, however people occupy our souls, and it is difficult when our “sole mate” is away. Soon you both will be embarking on a new adventure, one filled with unknowns, but enticing you to enlarge your outreach to another needy group of God’s children. Your family obviously is important to you and remember … you and Brandon are very important to those of us who know and love you. God bless you for your commitment. You both are unique in your dedication, insight, talents, and commitment. Our prayers go with you where ever you serve our Lord.
