This is one of my favorite pictures of myself. Not because it's good. (because honestly, I look quite rough) But it was moments after I experienced a major breakthrough in my life.
I was in Sighisoara, Romania- the summer after my sophomore year of college. I went because I wanted to. But while I was there, I realized that my life is not my own. I am bought with a high price. And God gets to determine how my days are spent.
I've wanted to be a teacher my whole life. Almost literally- since 4th grade. Applied to college w/ a middle grades major and graduated w/ that degree.
But, it was in Sighisoara that I realized that I may not always do that.
God may have other things in store for me.
And Sighisoara was the place that I could go.
Years later, I still have a major heart to serve in other countries- Romania is always close to my heart, but I've also spent time in China and my heart breaks for the country.
People always ask me if I'll be back- and I know I will.
And what's more.
My heart is there now.
