US Tour: Hidden Beauty

i am decided – after the US tour, i am taking my break right away. the truth is – my laundry still sits unwashed, my room unswept and my clothes unfolded. all i want to do when i get back to my room is to snuggle deep in the warm blankets and sleep away. since monday, my day has started at 7:30 and ended around 9:30-10:oo at night. today is probably the 1st day that is over early.

but i am having a lot of fun. God has taught me many great lessons and revealed His beauty through different things and people. sometimes beauty doesn’t need to be dazzling and glamorous. it can be wild flowers in the bushes; sunset on the highway or children’s smiles.

it humbled me. the world tends to emphasize on the power of greatness either in social status or outer appearances. but the Bible says that even all these things will pass away. what remains forever is God’s love…everlasting and unchanging.

anyway, with all that is going on, i really wish i would have someone by my side to share the stories with (as i’m typing this, i feel like i’m having a deja vous! creepy). a lot of times the experiences are overwhelming. and i just wish that when i came home, i would be able to pick up the phone to talk to this man who wouldn’t mind spending time talking with me about things like how cute the kids were, how beautiful the weather was, how stressful the day was and how i needed prayer.

below is some pictures of the hidden beauty along the roads i’ve traveled on. they are my joy. 🙂 

hopefully, when my mind isn’t so tired, i’ll be able to tell more about the trip itself. now i am ready to go to bed now. but i haven’t showered yet. and i think i am going to skip it…again. 😛
