I have escaped to Spain for a few weeks. It's good to be back, weird to be back. It's fun to see people I know and see their joy that I am doing well. For some reason I find it amazing to see people who are genuinely content that I am back and still alive. When I mentioned this to Gaby, she said "well, nobody is going to tell you that they wished you hadn't made it." Good point, amiga.
I think I'm just as content about it. That God, in His great mercy, continues to allow me to serve Him here. I am thankful to have been brought through this awful situation so that I can testify to the goodness of God and show compassion to those who are suffering.
Three weeks isn't a very long time -- it's just enough time to start getting settled in. But I'll take it. And it just makes me more excited about coming back in a few months! Praise the Lord for another opportunity at life!
