Brainless in the States

It was naptime and the house was quiet. The oldest two just sat at the table finishing their school work… and clearly stalling some.

Abi: “You know,” all reflective-like, “I really thought we’d be coming back to this house at furlough. Like I didn’t think we’d never be coming back.”

Rachael: Emotionless with her mind still on her work, “We’re never coming back to this house.”

Abi: “Yeah… I know now.” Thinks for a few seconds. “And like… our friends are going to be older because we’ll be older.”

Rachael: “Yeah, Lexi (who’s currently in elementary school) will be DRIVING!” She finally engages her mind in the conversation.

Abi: “But what if we forget her name?”

Rachael: Quickly dismissing her sister, “—We’re not going to forget her name!”

Abi: “Yeah…” (attempting to be persuasive), “but what if we forget her name?”

Rachael: (Not buying it.) “We won’t forget her name.”

Abi: “Yeah, I guess we could just be like, ‘Sorry we forgot your name we are on FURLOUGH afterall!”



Processing isn’t always sad.

Sometimes it’s just hilarious.



– Apparently everyone should automatically assume we will leave our brains in Africa. 😉


Have you ever thought that the all-sufficient Savior has promised those who walk in blind faith more than our minds can ever comprehend? That the only True Savior renews our minds, even when we feel most useless toward His Kingdom work? The Lord of all dares to touch our hearts, even as we stumble to find obedience. Oh how this soul wishes we Christians would embrace His Truth! And that the world would be different because of obedient hearts. Lord, change me. Lord, change us. All for Your glory. ---------- I am a Jesus-follower, a Homemaker, a Wife of the best man EVER, a Mom of 4 wonderful girls, a missionary in Africa, a Friend, an Encourager, a Seeker of integrity who is unsatisfied with a mediocre walk in Christ, and Blessed beyond any words that I could ever express. Thanks for being interested in my little slice of the world.
