Shall we... recap?

So I can't keep up with my own blogger anymore. Blast.
Anyway, let's rewind just a little bit...
Yes, I live in Japan and was just there, this morning... or was that yesterday? Ugh, anyway. Yes, I am still residing in Japan... however. At 5PMish I arrived in Bloomington-Normal, Illinois to spend some time with my family. I will be here for about two months...
Here is my Mom, greeting me at the airport with a sign that asks "How are you?" in Japanese. My family is ever so cute and creative.
Seeing my Dad for the first time...
The highlight of this trip is definitely my family... well, that's the entire reason for this trip... but I didn't know I would get to see the newest member of our family... Miss Waveland Eliza. I like this picture because I couldn't take her out of her baby seat (cause she'd wake up) so I'm just making what appears to be a gremlin face at her. Ha ha!
Ah, the joys of coming home...
*Nevertheless, I am continually with you; You hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel and afterward you will receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. But for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the LORD GOD my refuge, that I may tell of all your works.* Psalm 73:23-26,28

She must have really good looking parents to be such a good looking child! Especially her dad! Her dad must be strong and handsome and physically fit.

you look so pretty in this photo with Waveland!!!

ahhh! I'm so glad you're home! You are only 5 to 6 hours away from me, in the same time zone, and with your family!

I'm rejoicing friend. Glad you are home for a time.

Love.

aw, Joanna. I miss you as well. I don't know if you know this but Psalm 73:26-28 was a big part of my summer in Japan. (you made me cry) Thanks for your comment on mine. I'm realizing so much more how heaven is my true home...

i miss the people and places in Japan and it's hard to explain to everyone at home. I love you friend. I'm praying for and enjoying your pictures from home!!!

Jordan... I mean, anonymous, thank you for your comment. You are right. Waveland's parents are very good looking. I always thought her Dad was the cutest but then I met Rochelle Schupbach and there are no words for the beauty that is Rochelle. She continues to surprise me with her beauty and strength. I love her so.
Kelli, I love that we are 5-6 hours away. That sounds so long but it's funny cause it's not.
Ariel, girl! I miss you! Please continue to share with me what God is teaching you. I want to hear what He is leading you through... with cords of kindness. :) Love you sister.
