When I see this city at night, it reminds me of this verse in the bible. (1John 1:5-7) We heard the true teaching from God. Now we tell it to you: God is light, and in him there is no darkness. So if we say that we share in life with God, but we continue living in darkness, we are liars, who don’t follow the truth. We should live in the light, where God is. If we live in the light, we have fellowship with each other, and the blood sacrifice of Jesus, God’s Son, washes away every sin and makes us clean.
I see this city full of lights....the entire city is lit up with a beautiful blinding bright light but yet the city is filled with darkness. Actually, it is a darkness that I have never known....and probably many of you have never seen with your own eyes as well. It changes you. Ohhhh please continue to pray for this city that one day they will all see the true Light of Jesus and they will no longer live in bondage. The people in Mexico will live in our hearts forever.
This blog began as a way of writing about Lottie and Emma and sharing precious memories with our family and friends. Then it became a journal about our lives as missionaries. We tried to share as much as we could but for security reasons we couldn't always show you everything and everyone that has impacted our lives. Now as we get ready for a new journey.....I feel it is time to stop blogging. I am desiring to be a more "present" mom and wife. Not that blogging takes a long time but sometimes it does for me if I have something deep to share. My family needs healing and time together. Besides praying for the Mexican people, please also pray for the Byrd's Nest as we open a new chapter in our lives. God has blessed our little family in so many ways since I began blogging.....and I can't wait to see what He has in store for our future!
I love ya'll! Honestly, I cannot BELIEVE the amazing prayer warriors and friends God has placed in my life through this blog. It is incredible how much I love the deep friendships I have with some of you and yet....I have never even hugged your neck in person! One day....ohhhh how I pray to hug each of you!
