Hola Amigos!

Kristin here.  
I have been sick the entire time we've been in Antigua.  Not fun.  
Yesterday was the worst by far.

I think God is "forcing me" to stop, rest, and listen.  
It's been a gift.
Difficult for me?  Yes.  Very.
I'd rather be "do-ing" instead of "be-ing".  

But, God has been speaking...

...and, I've been weak enough to listen.

Here's a quote from a book I finished this morning.  Sums it all up for me right now.

"The way of Jesus is the path of descent.  It's about our death.  It's our willingness to join the world in its suffering... it's our weakness calling out to others in their weakness."

Trying to embrace my weakness,

amen on "being" instead of "doing." grace is sufficient. Isaiah 30:15 comes to mind as I read your entry today.
