loving: the abundant and foundational truths in John 15...all spring long this chapter has been churning in my mind.

noticing: how important a solid community of family and friends is in our lives.

remembering: to abide.

thinking: about our international and cross-country travels in front of us. and looking forward to being home again. i love to adventure to new places, but i'm a home body at heart.
